This early 20th century blue and white porcelain container is referred to as a jubako in Japan. The painted flowers represent the four seasons. Jubako were traditionally used while celebrating the New Year. Each layer contained traditional holiday foods that have special meanings and wishes such as: good health, happiness, fertility, wealth, and long life. It lives on as a perfect container for keepsakes and jewelry today.

“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.”
