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.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
