Filled with roasted melon seeds, dried fruit, and soybeans toasted with cinnamon, fennel, and other spices, an elegant snack box like this would have been presented as a gift to an honored friend. We’ve elevated this 19th-century box on a brass base to function as an occasional table. Coated in lacquer that has gently crackled with the passage of time, this box tells a great story while providing the practical option of storing remote controls, coasters, and other essentials of today's home.
