Tea has an auspicious beginning—it was (allegedly) enjoyed by the Buddha himself, and cakes of tea as large as wagon wheels were given to Chinese emperors as tribute. Tea drinking was a symbol of upper-class refinement in ancient China and in later centuries, when this provincial tea leaf jar was made, a staple in every home. Hand-painted cobalt blue traditional garden scenes encircle the jar on a creamy white background.

“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.”
