Early 20th Century Chinese Shallow Shanxi Trough


Prized mounts once took refreshment from this stone trough, carved from a solid block of limestone more than hundred years ago. Once purely functional, the trough is celebrated today for its elegant, simple form and rustic authenticity. A wonderful addition to the garden, the trough can be filled with lush greenery or striking floral arrangements.
