China was the earliest known civilization to create works using cast iron, first appearing during the illustrious Zhou dynasty (1046-256 BCE). This pair of round basins continues tradition and references19th-century iron vessels used for collecting rain water near homes in case of fire. Both basins are decorated in low relief with a trailing vine motif bearing lotus blossoms, an emblem of summer and symbols of purity and perfection. Balanced on tripod feet and fitted with two ring handles, these unusual containers are wonderful as garden planters or firewood bins.

“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.”
