For over 250 years - through many turbulent years of Chinese history - this red lacquered trunk has remained in beautiful condition. The low trunk is made of hide lacquered in a brilliant red, which has gained a fantastic crackled texture, punctuated by its original brass hardware. The front is painted with detailed courtyard scenes depicting a wealthy merchant with his attendants, and the sides are decorated with intricate scrollwork. Mounted on custom steel legs, this vibrant trunk becomes a captivating end table.

“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.”
