This precious 19th-century English table casket features mother of pearl inlay and carved shell drawer pulls. The top of the piece is decorated with a painted landscape & Gothic church, incorporating mother of pearl to create a whimsical scene. The papier mache inlay technique used throughout this treasure box was a European innovation inspired by a desire to recreate lacquerware imported from China during the early 19th century. A stunning accessory for the home, this wonderfully ornate box is perfect as a decorative jewelry box. The original lock with keys for the top compartment is still operable.

“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.”
