This architectural artifact dates to mid-20th century Japan as an integral part of Buddhist worship. The offering stand was once used in butsudans, Japanese shrines built for honoring ancestors and religious figures. Used to display offerings of food and beverages, this pair of altar stands would be accompanied by other religious items like Buddha statues, candlesticks, incense burners and bells. The hexagon shaped stands are made of wood with primarily a black lacquer but embellished with golden lacquer on the front. They are also decorated with various abstract cutouts along the front.

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.”
