This hand held pewter dish is an excellent example of fine Chinese metalwork of the 20th century. During the Qing dynasty, pewter craftsmen experimented with new techniques, showing the influence of Western silver tableware styles as well as Manchu dining culture. The two dishes are bound by a hinge, making it easily foldable and therefore portable for everyday use. Along the middle hinge and the perimeter of the dish is a charming trailing vine and leaf detail. A bat with wings outstretched decorates the opposite end, a symbol for happiness and good fortune. The little dish is finished with a low relief maker's mark on the base.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

“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.”
