Crafted in early 20th-century Burma, this round tray is cloaked in layer upon layer of brilliant red-orange cinnabar lacquer. Decorated in a style known as "yun" ware, the lacquer finish was finely etched with intricate line work and a pattern of trailing vines. These lines were then filled with colored pigments, as evidenced by traces of the bowl's original gold decoration. Possibly originally one layer of a stacking box, this decorative tray remains stunning to this day, its surface now richly aged from a century of use.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
