Alongside spiritual icons and incense burners, altars used for ancestor worship were ritually laden with offerings of food and ripe fruits. Known as an offering fruit, this ceramic pomegranate would have been used as an evergreen alternative to fresh fruits during cold seasons. The pomegranate, with its many seeds, is a common motif in Chinese art and symbolizes hope for a large and prosperous family. Dated to the early 20th century, the pomegranate figurine is brushed with vibrant green and purple glaze and adds a wonderful pop of color to a bookcase or table arrangement.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
