This finely woven c. 1800 trunk is a work of art in itself and was possibly used to store prized painted scrolls. A skilled artisan painstakingly wove thin-as-hair reeds to cover each panel. The top is fully detachable and maintains its original black lacquer and richly patinated brass fittings. The inside of this elegant trunk is lined in a veneer of aromatic wood to better conserve the paintings that were stored in it centuries ago.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
