One of the primary functions of the Chinese garden was to provide a setting for literary gatherings, places where poets and scholars convened with nature and commemorated the affair with poetry. Freely brushed in cobalt blue on white porcelain, this delightful vase depicts a scholar and his attendants in a garden. The artist’s deft hand animates the figures, capturing the sway of the scholar caught in a breeze and the impish grins of the attending boys. The spill of peaches at their feet suggests the bounty of the season and extends a wish of longevity.

“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.”
