This petite keepsake box is a charming example of Japanese lacquer art, or urushi. The box began with a square wooden substrate, finished by layer upon layer of glossy black lacquer. In the classic style of gold-against-black, the exterior is decorated with two figures seated in an intricate indoor setting. Gently aged from years of use, this beautiful little box is full of character and makes for a lovely gift.

“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.”
