Plain wooden hitching posts have been used for centuries to secure horses. But during the Ming and Qing dynasties families showed off their wealth by displaying beautiful stone posts, like this, which is carved in the shape of a pumpkin. This post was carved over a century ago in China’s Shanxi province out of limestone that has beautiful wear, patina, and oxidation.

“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.”
