Painted on polished pinewood, a pair of admiring birds perch on a cherry blossom branch. Cocking its head in a characteristically birdlike manner, the top bird gazes at its friend below it, symbolizing “double happiness.” Possibly created on the occasion of a marriage, the panel was painted in the port city of Canton (today called Guangzhou) in the early 20th century.

“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.”
