This petite ceramic jar is believed to be a later example of Neolithic Chinese redware pottery of the Yangshao culture. Although its exact age is unknown, the jar was likely created around 5000–3000 B.C.E.. Hand coiled and burnished on a slow-turning wheel before painting, Yangshao vessels are notable for their red-orange earthenware and squat form. This jar, painted with a free hand in an imaginative geometric design, was probably used to hold food or liquids buried with the dead. Now weathered from age and use, we marvel at this object for its storied past.

“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.”
