Two Compatible Chinese Lacquered And Gilded Diminutive "trays" For Sale
To be honest, I am not certain of the original use of these lovely diminutive "trays". They may have been part of the accessories of a scholar's table. Alternatively, they may have been for individual dishes for presenting dry condiments.
There is a calligraphy mark on the bottom of each piece. These are black lacquer with gilded landscapes, each one different.
Condition: excellent. Scenes and lacquer work well intact.
Provenance:I bought them in a quality antiques shop in Hong Kong in 1979
Dimensions: Width: 3 1/4"
