This petite traveling mirror dates to the early 20th century and is crafted with a metal frame embellished with allover repoussé decoration. Designed after Qing-dynasty vanity boxes, the lid hinges upwards to reveal a rectangular mirror and a shallow drawer opens from the front, possible intended for makeup or jewelry.

The lid is decorated with an idyllic scene of robed figures in a courtly garden, surmounted by plum blossom branches. The sides are decorated with the symbols for double happiness (囍 shuāngxǐ) and longevity (壽 shòu), each flanked by two butterflies, symbols of happiness and bliss.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

“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.”
