Cinnabar lacquer tray carved representing a phoenix under a magnolia, the bird is perched on a rock which hides an animal head in its folds. It is a work of excellent quality, the details are finely chiseled. The sculpture is very deep (8mm), it took a hundred coats of lacquer to obtain sufficient thickness. The lacquer is placed on a bronze base that protrudes at the edges. The lacquered contours are also sculpted vertically, which is absolutely exceptional and confirms the excellence of this work of art. 234x107x11mm weight:320g Early 20°. China republic or Japan Meiji. Excellent condition. Only a little choc at one corner(look photo of the back).Dirty.
