A crimson orb resonates from within the mirror black ground of this gorgeous footed tray enclosed in the original wooden box titled Akebono Moriki (Platter decorated with Dawn) and is signed from the Heian-do Lacquer Studio. The artist has fused the red and black together, the center of the sun-like circle opaque vermillion, the outer edge hazy as it diffuses into the black. The slightly curving basin is raised on a tall wide central foot all in highly polished ro-iro black. It is 36.5 cm (14-1/4 inches) square, 8 cm (3 inches) tall and in excellent condition.
