This late 19th century covered jar takes its rounded shape from serving tureens used to serve soups and stews. Contrasted by a crisp white field, the lid and sides are intricately decorated with scenes of a Ming-dynasty courtly gathering. Surrounded by noblemen and their attendants, two young boys approach a seated elderly official to bestow an offering. The lively scene is rendered in a palette of soft blues, greens, and purples and marked by traces of the original gilt pigmentation.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
