This architectural valance from the early 19th century is beautifully carved in low relief, with a meandering floral design outlined by striking, high-contrast shadows. The valance is adorned with trailing ivy and several peony blossoms, symbolizing wealth, honor, and virtue. Hand-carved in China's Shanxi province, this valance represents the masterful craftsmanship sought by wealthy homeowners, who would have commissioned it as an architectural detail for their courtyard home at the height of the Qing Dynasty.

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“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.”
