In traditional Chinese healing, medicine alone could not cure a person’s illness. A physician would strive to balance a patient's vital energy, their yin and yang, as a person is believed to become ill when these two forces lose harmony. The medicinal herbs used to restore balance to a patient's energies were stored in apothecary jars such as this one. Beautifully coated in an irregular turquoise glaze, this elegant ceramic vessel would have once lined the walls of a Chinese apothecary.

“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.”
