The basic form of this three-tiered Chinese box has remained unchanged for a thousand years. Used like a modern lunchbox, each tier of this portable stacking box would have been filled with food and carried around by the handle. This example dates to the late 19th-century and has loosely woven sides set within a bent bamboo frame. The exterior is darkened by a thin layer of red lacquer and decorated with painted characters and simple brass hardware.

“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!”
