This precious 19th-century English table casket features mother of pearl inlay and carved shell drawer pulls. The top of the piece is decorated with a painted landscape & Gothic church, incorporating mother of pearl to create a whimsical scene. The papier mache inlay technique used throughout this treasure box was a European innovation inspired by a desire to recreate lacquerware imported from China during the early 19th century. A stunning accessory for the home, this wonderfully ornate box is perfect as a decorative jewelry box. The original lock with keys for the top compartment is still operable.

“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.”
