Made in the early 20th century in China's Jiangsu province, this jewelry chest was once used by a Qing-dynasty woman to contain her personal treasures in the intimate quarters of a traditional Chinese home. A latch in the shape of two bats tops the jewelry box, a symbol of double happiness and good fortune, while below it, two keyhole locks shaped as ornate charms ornament the drawers. Brass pulls contrast the chest’s birch construction, left unfinished to showcase its natural grain and golden color. The chest’s lid lifts to reveal a framed mirror.

Height with Mirror Extended: 17.75"
Drawers: 8.5"W x 12"D x 2.5"H

“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.”
