The traditional Chinese gu vase dates back as far as 1600 BC, when the form was originally cast in bronze. This set of early 20th century pewter gu vases would have been used in a traditional southern Chinese upper-class home as wine goblets or vessels for ritual offerings. The censer would have accompanied the vases, placed tabletop and used for burning incense.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
