Used to store loose leaf tea, this porcelain jar is decorated in a style of overglaze enameling known as "famille rose." Sometimes referred to as "yangcai" or "foreign colors," the famille rose style emerged during the 18th century and employs a pastel palette of opaque overglaze enamels that favors roses and pinks.

This cylindrical tea leaf jar is painted with a bountiful harvest of pumpkins, symbols of abundance, prosperity, and many descendants. Growing off a vine dotted with leaves and squash blossoms, the pumpkins are surrounded by large butterflies, symbols of joy and happiness. A celebration of autumn, this colorful jar brightens up any surface and is the perfect size for storing odds and ends.

“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.”
