This 19th-century porcelain bowl has a delicate, tapered form, finely potted with a short footed base and thin walls that flare slightly at the lip. The interior is decorated in low relief with a koi amidst crashing waves, a symbol of harmony, wealth, and luck. A pale glaze coats the dish on all sides, appearing a warm creme on the sides but celadon-blue where it gathers at the bottom. The translucent glaze has aged beautifully with time, textured with imperfections, iron oxidation, and fine crazing.

What They're Saying

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
