Based on vessels fired in ancient Chinese kilns, this jar's perfect proportions haven't changed much since the Bronze Age. Keeping in the tradition of its predecessors, this early 20th-century ceramic vessel is glazed with a slip of red clay, yielding a warm, terracotta coloring. Two small strap handles sit on the high shoulders of the jar's otherwise unadorned round form. Originally used as a soup pot, the well-worn jar has gained a fantastic texture over time, making it perfectly imperfect.

“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.”
