Brush pots and scroll pots carved to resemble tree trunks were popular during the Qing dynasty (1644-1911), and were among the many esteemed objects found in a traditional scholar’s studio. This early 19th-century scroll pot made of hand-carved root wood has an organic form that would have been used as a source of creative inspiration, calling to mind the complexities of nature.

“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.”
