Originally cast in bronze, the gu vase form dates back nearly three thousand years. Characterized by a slender body and flared mouth, gu vases were traditionally used for drinking wine or presenting ritual offerings. Crafted of porcelain, this Qing-dynasty blue-and-white gu vase exhibits a stylized botanical motif of abstract leaf panels and delicate floral scrolls painted in deep cobalt blue.

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.”
