Carpenters in China's Fujian province during the late Qing dynasty frequently experimented with new carving techniques and ornate finishes. A collection of varying techniques, this provincial red-lacquered storage chest features cushion carved panels on its two doors and three drawers. Each panel is coated with several layers of black lacquer and bordered by a gilt trim of lustrous mica. Rich in character, the chest has developed a wonderful texture with age.

“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.”
