This adorable pair of low square chests were designed to be used as portable safes, used to store and secure money and other valuables for a Qing-dynasty merchant or household. The chests open two ways - the front opens by two doors secured by a dagger-and-post hardware, and the top opens by a hinged panel secured by a round lock etched with a floral design. This round lock doubles as a coin slot, used to easily add money to the chest without opening it. Minimally decorated, the chests borrow design elements from the waisted square stool, featuring a waisted top, straight square legs, and hoofed feet. Their compact design and small scale make these banker's chests a charming addition to the home as low nightstands or side tables.

“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.”
