This early 20th century coffer from Mongolia was painted by hand with auspicious fruits and blessings, likely as part of a bride's dowry. Wishes painted on the pomegranates, peaches and citrons, symbols of eternity, fertility and buddha's gentle watch, express hope for a long and happy marriage, healthy children, wisdom and eternal happiness. The goldenrod finish is an unusual color for furniture of the era and was likely commissioned specifically for the recipient family.

“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.”
