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.
