This pair of vintage collector's shelves are carved of zitan, a prized hardwood indigenous to Southern Chinese forests that has a very slow growth cycle. It is said that zitan wood takes over 800 years to harvest. Much of the most collectible Chinese furniture is carved from Zitan wood. Traditionally, vase form shelves would have been used to display precious porcelains and other antiquities. This fine pair features asymmetrically configured shelves with intricately carved floral galleries and delicate piercework aprons.

“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.”
