This beautiful red lacquer box was once presented as a gift, filled with popular snacks like roasted melon seeds, dried fruit, and cinnamon-toasted soy beans. The lightweight box is shaped like a flower and contains nine interior trays, one for each petal and a round tray in the center. The red lacquer exterior is finely painted with the ribbon-clad accessories of the Eight Immortals of Taoism, including a palm leaf fan, a double gourd flask, and a pair of castanets. These auspicious objects are surrounded by fluffy clouds and plum blossoms and colored by traces of the original gilt pigmentation.

“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.”
