Secured by brass latches, this elmwood money chest once safeguarded the finances and prized possessions of a Qing-dynasty household. Unlocked, the hinged top folds to an open storage area, while the double doors at the bottom reveal a divided cabinet. Unprotected storage is provided by a middle drawer. Rich in character, the once-glossy lacquered finish has weathered over time, leaving the chest with a genuine distressed appearance that’s often emulated for its rustic appeal.

Drawer: 17.50"W x 13.75"D x 6"H

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
