Crafted in the late 19th century, this striking red lacquer cabinet was likely part of a traditional wedding dowry, bestowed upon the groom by the bride's family filled with fine silks, linens, and other gifts. The tall cabinet has a clean-lined form, designed with straight legs, square corners and minimal embellishments.

The cabinet front is cloaked in a bright, cinnabar-red lacquer finish, contrasted by black lacquer sides and a huge, full-moon brass lock plate. The double doors open by two peach-shaped drop pulls, each secured to brass plates etched with abstract dragons and interlocking coins. A storied addition to the modern home, the cabinet offers ample storage with two interior shelves, two drawers, and a hidden lower compartment.

“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.”
