This elegant table chest was once used in the intimate quarters of a Qing-dynasty woman to store her cosmetics, jewelry, and other personal treasures. The wooden box is cloaked in layers of black lacquer, now richly aged and marked by traces of the original gold painted decoration. The hinged doors open to reveal an upper tray and five shallow drawers, each lined with red lacquer and painted with floral scrollwork. Ornate brass hardware adds the finishing touch, shaped with cloud and coin motifs.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
