Created by Beijing-based artist Deng Ying exclusively for PAGODA RED, this limited edition hand-painted seal box is one of a series playfully drawing on the Chinese tradition of blue-and-white porcelain. Fired at the historic Chinese imperial kilns of Jingdezhen, this petite box is painted with two birds with wings outstretched. Perhaps intended to be a mother and her child, the pair is painted with cartoonish form and expressive brushstrokes. A small container in this shape would have traditionally been used to contain ink for an artists seal stamp. Today, it is just right for jewelry or keepsakes. The box is signed and presented in a hand-made cushioned wood presentation box.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
