Filled with burning coals, this finely crafted 19th-century brazier once warmed the hands of a wealthy lady on a cold winter's night in northern China. The portable brazier is hand-wrought of white brass with a rounded body, two arched handles and an intricately-pierced lid. Surrounding a central shou character, five bats fly with outstretched wings , representing the Five Blessings of old age, wealth, health, virtue, and peace.

Some discoloration and significant oxidation on the interior.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
