This 19th century stacked chest from Shanxi, China was commissioned to commemorate the wedding of a new bride. Comprised of multiple tray-like boxes enclosed in a carved frame, the chest would have been part of a ceremonial procession and filled with the bride's dowry. It's meticulous design carved with a detailed lattice pattern is a tribute to her family’s elegance and good taste. Two people would have carried the box with a long pole inserted through the round iron hardware attached to the carved triangular frame.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
