This late 19th century miniature tapered keepsake cabinet would have been kept in a woman's quarters, likely as a jewelry chest. Wonderfully feminine butterfly hardware dominates the front panels, symbolizing love and longevity. The gilt painted panels are framed with lacquer embedded with chips of mica, a turn of the century technique practiced by artists in Fujian province where this was made.

“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.”
