Beautifully hand-carved of fine rosewood, this early 20th century plate once held precious objects or scholar's implements in an artist's studio. Prized for its rich color and fine grain, the wood is on full display in this exquisite tray, a work of art in itself. The plate is skillfully carved in the form of a leaf floating on billowing clouds, one of the eight treasure symbols in Chinese art and an emblem of felicity.

“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.”
