Product Description

A finely carved Cinnabar Lacquer Ashtray in good condition with panels depicting Chinese Pheasants.

Lacquer is sap which is harvested from a tree in much the same way as Maple but instead of pouring over food stuffs the lacquer is painstakingly applied one layer at a time, often hundreds of times, in order to build up a thickness suitable for carving.

While Lacquer has been used in Chinese Arts for nearly two thousand years, this piece is more likely to date from the mid 20th Century. Its shows some use to the brass rim around the cigarette rests but the lacquer is in good condition with no missing pieces and only slight discolouration in one or two spots. The carving is excellent and the detailed checkering gives a fine background not seen on pieces of less quality.
