Long ago, a Qing Dynasty lady may have used this marvelous little box adorned with peaches and pomegranates to store her most treasured pieces of jewelry: jades, pearls, coral necklaces, and hair pins filling each drawer. The pomegranate shaped hardware symbolizes fertility, and a wish for many children. The peaches symbolize longevity. The box was made in the Jiangsu region of China over a century ago, and the golden cedar has only gained character with age.
