Dancing in the light of glowing coals, the intricately rendered figure and fanciful fish that adorn this 19th-century brazier must have delighted those warming their hands over the heat. The Chinese character for fish is pronounced the same as the Chinese character for surplus so fish are considered symbols that bring a sense of good luck. Skillfully crafted out of brass, the brazier was used during cold weather in China’s northern provinces.

“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.”
