The simple form of this tabletop box is beautifully transformed by coats of rich lacquer and decorative painted motifs to become a fitting container for treasured objects. Crafted in the early 20th century, the treasure box depicts a scene of courtly life in Qing-dynasty China, framed by a meander border.

“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.”
