Crafted from a beautiful specimen of burled northern elm (yumu), this wooden document box likely once sat in the studio of a Qing-dynasty scholar-official. The perfect size for a rolled-up scroll, the box was used to store and protect works of calligraphy, landscape paintings, and official documents. The rectangular box is constructed with fine comb joinery with a sliding lid and lockable metal hinge.

“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.”
