Dated to the early 20th century, this painted wooden tray has a rectangular form raised by a simply carved footed base. The top is painted with a scholar in a courtyard setting, accompanied by a young attendant carrying a qin. The scene is enclosed by a beveled frame painted with floral scrollwork and simple meanders against a black field. Gently faded from a century of use, this small tray is a lovely example of Chinese folk artistry.

“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.”
