The basic form of this three-tiered rosewood box with handle has remained unchanged for a thousand years. The lack of formal dining rooms in traditional China prompted people to use stacked boxes to carry food from a remote kitchen to the room where it would be eaten. This hardwood example with fine beading and subtle details would have been the favorite choice for a member of the 19th-century elite. The lid is held in place by a long brass rod that extends through the two side supports.
