This jar is made of hand-blown gilt speckled blue Peking Glass. It was made over a hundred years ago, but China’s Imperial Workshop first developed glass techniques in the 17th century. The simple, flowing lines and gentle curves are crafted from a single piece of molten glass that is formed into this shape. The glass blower then added up to six more layers of molten glass to create the deep color. Lastly, glass carvers cut and polished the vessel, resulting in this traditional vase with a jewel-like appearance.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
