This elegant tabletop chest is a late 19th-century Chinese document box, once used by a businessman or scholar-official to sort his important documents and writing accessories. The box is expertly crafted of huali rosewood, a dense hardwood valued for its color and fine grain. Seamless dovetail joinery patterns the corners and brass drop handles adorn the sides, affixed to cloud-form plates. Each of the long drawers is fitted with two small drop pulls in the form of ripe peaches, emblems of immortality.
