Thanks to a student’s clumsy stumble over a tree root, the ancient and technologically sophisticated Bronze Age culture of Ban Chiang was rediscovered in 1966, turning the established idea about Southeast Asia’s contribution to civilization on its head. Demonstrating sophisticated knowledge of metallurgy, this ancient bronze kettle was cast at the end of this epoch, dating from 2100 B.C. to 300 A.D., and was probably used to concoct ritual offerings. Over the centuries, the kettle has traded the pale gold gleam of bronze for a rich green patina. We love the idea of imagining the kettle’s fiery creation by placing it alongside a roaring fire, filled with kindling.

“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.”
