Secured by brass latches, this elmwood money chest once safeguarded the finances and prized possessions of a Qing-dynasty household. Unlocked, the hinged top folds to an open storage area, while the double doors at the bottom reveal a divided cabinet. Unprotected storage is provided by a middle drawer. Rich in character, the once-glossy lacquered finish has weathered over time, leaving the chest with a genuine distressed appearance that’s often emulated for its rustic appeal.

Drawer: 17.50"W x 13.75"D x 6"H

Andrea Goldman | Andrea Goldman Design

“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.”
