This early 20th-century porcelain stacking box would have been used in a woman's personal chambers to store jewelry, cosmetics, and precious small objects. The box has three tiers and is brushed with overglaze enamels in a palette of green, pink, and iron red. The lid is painted with a gathering of robed figures and the sides of each layer are decorated with pumpkins, butterflies, and double happiness symbols.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

Elizabeth Krueger | Elizabeth Krueger Design

“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.”
