Vintage Japanese Tamari Lacquer c1920 tray server and 5 sm plates hand crafted
This is a complete set and an excellent example of Japanese Lacquer. The top surfaces are coated with a purple/red Lacquer known as tamari. It is very hard to find this color since originally the color would have been by combining natural plant and barks to achieve. Each piece takes years to produce since each item is carved but has to be done slowly to allow the piece to dry completely before carving again until time to lacquer and paint artwork. Please see pictures on condition. Rare is to see silver applied to the edging instead of the normally seen gold. This item is in the category "Antiques\Asian Antiques\Japan\Tea Caddies". The seller is "dusdde" and is located in this country: US. This item can be shipped to United States.
