This pair of low 19th century Chinese chests features finely rendered paintings of flowers and birds amidst a garden landscape over a rich hand-applied black lacquer finish. It is likely the chests would have originally been used to store clothing, incense or other personal items in a woman's sleeping quarters. They are connected to low platforms whose aprons are painted with dragons, representing strength and pearls for wisdom that protected the cabinets and their contents from moisture.

“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.”
