The basic form of this three-tiered rosewood box with handle has remained unchanged for a thousand years. The lack of formal dining rooms in traditional China prompted people to use stacked boxes to carry food from a remote kitchen to the room where it would be eaten. This hardwood example with fine beading and subtle details would have been the favorite choice for a member of the 19th-century elite. The lid is held in place by a long brass rod that extends through the two side supports.

“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.”
