The beautifully carved bands around this richly lacquered 19th-century keeper's trunk from Northern China are rounded to mimic the iron that would traditionally bind a slatted washing tub. With its unusual oval form and partially removable lid, secured by a small brass lock, this finely-made trunk was likely commissioned by a merchant to store and secure his keep. Coated in rich red and black lacquer, this trunk is a charming addition to the home as a side piece or coffee table.

“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.”
