Made in the early 20th century in China's Jiangsu province, this jewelry chest was once used by a Qing-dynasty woman to contain her personal treasures in the intimate quarters of a traditional Chinese home. A latch in the shape of two bats tops the jewelry box, a symbol of double happiness and good fortune, while below it, two keyhole locks shaped as ornate charms ornament the drawers. Brass pulls contrast the chest’s birch construction, left unfinished to showcase its natural grain and golden color. The chest’s lid lifts to reveal a framed mirror.

Drawers: 8.5"W x 12"D x 2.5"H

“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.”
