This beautifully aged box dates to the mid-19th century and is comprised of finely woven bamboo and layer upon layer of black and red lacquer. The round box has a sculptural, tapered form, crafted with high shoulders, a constrained neck and a short footed base. Cutouts to the thick lacquer finish reveal the box's intricate woven construction, simulating inset panels. Cinnabar-red lacquer trims the edges and decorates the round lid with an abstract floral design.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
