Beautifully commemorated on this pair of baluster jars, censers have been used for thousands of years as a part of funeral rites or prayer offerings. Filled with dried aromatic plants and essential oils, the censer issued fragrant smoke that forged a connection to the spiritual realm. This pair of Qing-dynasty vases pays colorful tribute to the time-honored vessel in style of famille rose ware. Sometimes referred to as "yangcai" or "foreign colors," the famille rose style emerged during the 18th century and employs pastel palette of opaque overglaze enamels that favors roses and pinks. With their intricate decoration and fanciful coloring, these famille rose jars are a delightful way to brighten up any interior.

“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.”
