The sleek design of this 19th-century three drawer coffer with an open shelf reflects the great tradition of classic Chinese furniture. Handcrafted of elmwood in China’s Henan province, the cabinet's impressive workmanship is evident in its balanced proportions, elegant brass hardware and elaborate apron finely carved with abstract dragons. As with larger cabinets, coffers like this were typically offered by a bride's family as dowry furniture to be used in the bedroom, providing both storage space and a long console table top surface.

“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.”
