Made in the early 20th century in China's Jiangsu province, this jewelry chest was once used by a Qing-dynasty woman to contain her personal treasures in the intimate quarters of a traditional Chinese home.
A lotus-shaped lock tops the jewelry box, a symbol of purity and beauty, while below it, two pulls in the shape of ripe peaches ornament each drawer, symbols of longevity. Handmade of brass, the pulls contrast with the chest’s birch construction, left unfinished to showcase its natural grain and golden color. The chest’s lid lifts to reveal a framed mirror and two shallow jewelry compartments.
