Made around 1900 during the Qing dynasty, this stately storage cabinet bears the mark of European influences. Replicating elements of design seen in European furniture, Chinese carpenters and hardware makers integrated details into traditional Chinese designs visible in this cabinet’s distinctly colonial flourish to the glass-paned doors, the abstract scrolling vine motif incised on the wood doors, and the diamond-shaped pulls that reference hardware used on cabinetry brought to China from Europe. However, the cabinet’s construction and choice of materials remains solidly Chinese. Made of classic northern elm using sturdy, traditional construction methods, the cabinet displays dark-stained interiors that resemble black lacquer.

“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!”
