Brush pots and scroll pots carved to resemble tree trunks were popular during the Qing dynasty (1644-1911), and were among the many esteemed objects found in a traditional scholar’s studio. This early 19th-century scroll pot made of hand-carved root wood has an organic form that would have been used as a source of creative inspiration, calling to mind the complexities of nature.

“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.”
