Once used on a provincial Chinese farm to hold water or animal feed, this early 20th-century stone trough is celebrated today for its organic form and rustic authenticity. The footed trough has a rectangular form and shallow, oval basin, hand-shaped from solid limestone with balanced symmetry and perfectly imperfect texture. A pattern of vertical grooves textures the trough on all sides, the result of careful chiseling by hand. The irregular surface of the stone has softened with time, developing rounded edges and a subtle patina from centuries of use. A drainage hole is drilled into the center of the basin, making this trough ideal as a garden planter or stone sink basin.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
