Designed to hold glowing embers, hibachi vessels were used as a source of heat or for cooking in Japanese homes. Placed under a low wood kotatsu table with an open slat top, the hibachi functioned as a grill and created a cozy gathering place for the family. This 19th-century hibachi is decorated with intricate blue-and-white patterns surrounding a trail of double gourds, symbols of health, longevity, and good luck. Within several gourds is a traditional landscape painting depicting a small cottage, connecting the auspicious symbol to the home. Grand in scale and heft, this captivating hibachi makes an ideal jardinière.

“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.”
