This ceramic garden seat was created in the early 20th century by an artisan in Canton, also known as Guangzhou, a major port city in southern China. Ringing both its top and bottom, a pattern of boss-head nails imitates those used to stretch a skin on an actual drum and decorative handles adorn each side, topped by guardian protectors. A rich brown glaze cloaks the garden seat, speckled with imperfections and subtly fading to dark at the base. Traditionally used as a place to rest one’s feet, a stool like this is perfect as a garden seat or a small side table.

“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.”
