This sculptural stone post was hand-carved in the 18th-century from a solid block of limestone. The column is crowned with a lotus bud - a symbol of purity and perfection. Trailing vines carved in low relief wrap around the base, dotted with raised carvings of four-petal blossoms. The post was likely part of a taller marker that stood outside the home of a wealthy merchant in northern China over two centuries ago.

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“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.”
