This elegant table chest was once used in the intimate quarters of a Qing-dynasty woman to store her cosmetics, jewelry, and other personal treasures. The wooden box is cloaked in layers of black lacquer, now richly aged and marked by traces of the original gold painted decoration. The hinged doors open to reveal an upper tray and five shallow drawers, each lined with red lacquer and painted with floral scrollwork. Ornate brass hardware adds the finishing touch, shaped with cloud and coin motifs.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

What They're Saying

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“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.”
