The configuration of this late-19th/early-20th century coffer is typical of low cabinets from Tianjin, a port city in Northern China. It has a strong presence, a slight waist, hoof feet and maintains its original hand made brass hardware in the shape of bats, which represent good fortune. The original lacquer finish has developed wonderful character over time. Cabinets like this one provided general storage for a typical home in Tianjin.

“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.”
