Crafted of fine rosewood, this early 20th-century footed headrest was once used by an upper-class woman in lieu of a pillow. Gently curving to support her head and neck at rest, the headrest also helped to preserve her intricate hairstyle. This particular headrest is fitted with a petite drawer, used to store precious keepsakes while one slept. Since the drawer only opens when the headrest is upright on its side, the owner could rest easy knowing her valuables were safe.

“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!”
