Set of Six Black and Gold Makie Lacquer Covered Bowls

The lids of these elegant vintage Japanese lacquer covered bowls are decorated with gold lacquer peonies on a rich black lacquer ground. They date to the mid-20th century. The peony flower blossoms and leaves have been hand painted in gold hiramakie (flat lacquer) with takamakie (raised lacquer) highlights on a glossy black roiro-nuri ground. Roiro is a technique of using the highest quality black urushi lacquer, applied and polished in several layers. The rims are finished with gold lacquer. Each bowl is marked “Made in Japan” in gold lacquer on the base.

CONDITION is excellent. DIMENSIONS: 5” (12.7 cm) diameter, 3 ˝” (9 cm) high.
