This is an exquisite example of a 17th-century square corner cabinet, constructed with masterful mortise and tenon joinery. It features two paneled doors attached with small barrel hinges, a reference to traditional cabinets designs from thousands of years prior. The removable center rod between the doors is intended as a firm point to attach a lock, keeping doors neatly shut and the contents secure. Notably, this fine cabinet was originally lacquered not only on the exterior, but on the interior as well. The lacquer finish has aged beautifully, with a wondrous patina and rich character.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
