This early 20th century Chinese cabinet from Fujian province features finely gilt painted floral doors that depict birds and flowering branches. Each scene is framed in lacquer embedded with chips of mica, a turn-of-the-century technique practiced by artists in Fujian. This type of chest was frequently offered as part of a dowry, given to the groom's family and filled with gifts.

“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.”
