This round tray dates to the early 20th century and is a simple example of Burmese lacquerware. The tray is formed of thin bamboo strips that have been woven and coiled into shape, held in place with a putty of lacquer and sawdust, and finished with layer upon layer of glossy red and black lacquer. Decorated in a style known as "yun" ware, the lacquer finish was finely etched with intricate line work and filled with gold pigments. Originating as one layer of a stacking box, this decorative tray lives on with timeless form and rich texture.

Minor losses to lacquer finish.

“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.”
