Leaving this grandly scaled urn unglazed, the Qing-dynasty craftsman who crafted it chose instead to draw attention to the surface decoration. Skillfully modeled floral motifs stand in high relief, casting shape-enhancing shadows on the vessel’s surface. Raised decorations under the rim also define its gently curved silhouette. Likely used for kitchen storage, the container would look lovely nestled in a garden filled with plants or as a water feature.

“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.”
