These elegant Black Lacquer Pagoda Boxes with their lustrously silken lacquer finishes are stunning expressions of an art form developed in China over 4,000 years ago. Originally a protective coating for wooden household items, the addition of color to lacquer ultimately led to the creation of sophisticated art pieces like these. Lacquered wood. Not food safe.
