Just 150 years ago this elegant case would have been one of the centerpieces in the studio of a Chinese scholar. The open shelves would have made it ideal for displaying valuable books, scrolls, and treasured objects. Each compartment is thoughtfully framed by a quadrilobe design, painted with a beautifully aged red lacquer finish.
