Japanese Nashiji Lacquer Tray With Crane and Wave Design
This exquisite tray is a masterful example of multiple lacquer techniques using gold (including maki-e and takamaki-e). This very special tray was originally used as an offering tray, to offer a robe or a kimono to an aristocrat (or possibly an actor). Wonderful detail in the feathers of the crane, and the crashing waves. Comes with its original storage box.
