The fish on this hand-painted 19th-century provincial plate represents a blessing for wealth. Chinese symbols take on added meaning and nuance when combined with other motifs. The decorative blue lines surrounding the fish suggest water, which together would offer the wish "to be as content as a fish in water."

“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.”
