This architectural valance from the early 19th century is beautifully carved in low relief, with a meandering floral design outlined by striking, high-contrast shadows. The valance is adorned with trailing ivy and several peony blossoms, symbolizing wealth, honor, and virtue. Hand-carved in China's Shanxi province, this valance represents the masterful craftsmanship sought by wealthy homeowners, who would have commissioned it as an architectural detail for their courtyard home at the height of the Qing Dynasty.

“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.”
