Working within the time-honored tradition of blue-and-white porcelain, artisans from China's Jiangxi province painted this pair of contemporary double-gourd vases with scenes from a wondrous scholar’s garden. Using the porcelain vessel’s hourglass shape to great advantage, the artist devoted the bottom half to images of literati playing the strategy game of Go, one of the four arts a scholar must master, while nearby attendants hold burning incense. The upper half is lavishly decorated with an intricate trailing vine motif and a regal peacock, a symbol of beauty and dignity.

“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.”
