Crafted of fine rosewood, this early 20th-century incense tray is an example of the multi-functional boxes used tabletop in lieu of a chest of drawers. While some were used to store cosmetics, jewelry, documents, and other accessories, the small scale and narrow drawers of this box suggest it was used to store incense. The recessed top functions as a decorative tray for displaying censers, and was likely kept atop a family altar. Showcasing the rich color and fine grain of prized rosewood, this incense tray is perfect as a display stand for sculptures or decorative objects.
