This small figurine was originally used as a counterweight for a tabletop balance, used to parcel out opium, spices, or other valuable goods. The petite weight is cast in bronze in the form of a rooster, the tenth symbolic animal of the Chinese zodiac calendar. An auspicious protector, the rooster is traditionally believed to embody the yang, the element of warmth and life of the universe.

“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.”
