Dated to the early 20th-century, this petite box was woven of thin bamboo strips and coated in a putty-like substance known as thayo, comprised of black lacquer and sawdust. The box has a square wooden base and tapers to a narrow rounded opening. Used for general storage of small items, the humble box is a work of art in itself and a beautiful example of a traditional craft.

“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.”
