This 19th-century porcelain bowl has a delicate, tapered form, finely potted with a short footed base and thin walls that flare slightly at the lip. The interior is decorated in low relief with a koi amidst crashing waves, a symbol of harmony, wealth, and luck. A pale glaze coats the dish on all sides, appearing a warm creme on the sides but celadon-blue where it gathers at the bottom. The translucent glaze has aged beautifully with time, textured with imperfections, iron oxidation, and fine crazing.

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.”
