This early 20th-century glazed vessel stands tall with an impressive and balanced cylindrical form. As indicated by its interior glaze and constrained neck that calls for a lid, this jar was once used for storing tea, sugar or other dry goods in a provincial Qing-dynasty kitchen. The jar boasts a thick, brown glaze speckled with pitted wear and firing imperfections.

The original lid has been lost.

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.”
