This early 20th-century ceramic jar is formed in a traditional shape meant for storing wine and spirits made from rice and grains. Known as cheng, these jars are defined by having a wide body with dramatically restricted neck and base, and were also used to store vinegar, oil, or condiments. The jar has a wonderfully balanced, oblong form accentuated by an all-over dark brown glaze. The product and maker's name is written in wax resist near the top, identifying the contents as double steamed wine from Jiujiang in Guangdong province.

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
