This petite keepsake box is a charming example of Japanese lacquer art, or urushi. The box began with a square wooden substrate, finished by layer upon layer of glossy black lacquer. In the classic style of gold-against-black, the exterior is decorated with two figures seated in an intricate indoor setting. Gently aged from years of use, this beautiful little box is full of character and makes for a lovely gift.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

“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.”
