In traditional Chinese healing, medicine alone could not cure a person’s illness. A physician would strive to balance a patient's vital energy, their yin and yang, as a person is believed to become ill when these two forces lose harmony. The medicinal herbs used to restore balance to a patient's energies were stored in apothecary jars such as this one. Beautifully glazed with a timeless simplicity, these elegant ceramic vessels would have once lined the walls of a Chinese apothecary.

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.”
