This porcelain hat stand is decorated in a style of overglaze enameling known as "famille rose." Sometimes referred to as "yangcai" or "foreign colors," the famille rose style emerged during the 18th century and employs a pastel palette of opaque overglaze enamels that favors roses and pinks.

Accented by quatrefoil cutouts, this six-sided hat stand is decorated with the Sānxīng (三星), the Three Star Gods of health, wealth, and longevity. Known respectively as Fú Lù Shòu (福祿壽), the three figures are folk deities that embody prominent star constellations and offer blessings for a good life. Hat stands such as this were traditionally used to display a man's cap while it wasn't being worn.

“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.”
