A traditional motif in Chinese art, the fish on this hand-painted 19th-century provincial plate represents a blessing for wealth. Chinese symbols take on added meaning and nuance when seen in combination. The decorative blue lines surrounding the fish suggest water, which together would offer the wish "to be as content as a fish in water." A charming example of Chinese blue-and-white porcelain, the plate has been mounted for display on a custom steel stand.

“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.”
