A skilled artisan of Shanxi province built this storage coffer, respecting the refined lines of Ming-dynasty furniture design by using traditional mortise and tenon joinery techniques. Its beautifully-worn finish shows years of use by the family who very well may have received it as part of a woman's dowry. Coffers were often used as family altars - the drawers holding incense and the additional space beneath used for other household goods. Originally, only the center two panels of this sideboard opened, but the piece has been expertly modified to convert the panels into front-facing doors.

“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.”
