A Box-on-Stand, Right at Hand

This little ‘object d’ art’ is interesting because it also has several uses. It is a ‘japanned’ finish box-on-stand. The lid can be removed completely, providing ample storage for one’s … handkerchiefs, for instance. When on the stand, it can serve as an occasional table.

The oval box can either be permanently fixed to the stand or be removable, like a large tray. The stand collapses for easy storage, with the box either accompanying it to the back closet or reposing in the home on a different surface.

The japanned finish has the characteristic delicate properties, but the effect is worth it. The peaceful scene of an oriental landscape stands out beautifully in gold against an ebony background.

This box-on-stand was once a whopping $449, but now is available for $175.
