Pebble-shaped tray

Price:  700,00

This rare pebble-shaped tray is decorated to the black lacquer ground with a chicken and a rooster perched on Paulownia branches. The decoration is finely inlaid in gold, silver, red and brown maki-e. The birds’ eyes are inlaid with mother-of-pearl. The tray has a red lacquer rim. The tray only has some minor scratches, predominantly to the base, as may be expected. It has its original marked wood box.

The Paulownia tree is considered to be the tree of good luck and life. The combination with the chicken and rooster is significant, being symbols of feminine and masculine powers. Shōwa period (1926-1989).
