This grande blue and white porcelain vase was painted by hand with mythical lions, representing protection, amidst clouds and pearls of wisdom. It is a called a phoenix tail vase due to the shape of the flair at the top. It is a perfect example of Chinese blue and white porcelains that inspired countless (often inferior) imitations throughout Asia and Europe. The blue cobalt oxide was actually introduced to China thousands of years ago by Islamic merchants, but Chinese potters refined the glazing techniques.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
