Dated to the mid-19th century, this small, round tray was likely once used as a shallow offering bowl atop a home altar. Comprised of finely woven bamboo sides and a thin wooden base, the plate is coated with dark black lacquer and decorated with a gilt landscape. The idyllic scene features a tiered pagoda amidst swaying trees and rocky outcroppings, and a fisherman navigating a quiet river in the foreground. Richly aged from centuries of use, this tray has a beautiful metallic glimmer when it catches just the right light.

“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.”
