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.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
