Crafted from a beautiful specimen of burled northern elm (yumu), this wooden document box likely once sat in the studio of a Qing-dynasty scholar-official. The perfect size for a rolled-up scroll, the box was used to store and protect works of calligraphy, landscape paintings, and official documents. The rectangular box is constructed with fine comb joinery with a sliding lid and lockable metal hinge.

“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.”
