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.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
