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.

“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.”
