A Large Vintage Japanese Maki-e Lacquer Kimono Tray
A large square lacquer presentation tray (likely for kimono) predated 1950 of the Showa period. Elaborately decorated with Maki-e that depicts the prunus blossom, bamboo and needle pine branches on a fantastic mottled mura nashiji background. The techniques used on this tray include hiramaki-e, the low relief maki-e, mostly with gold powder, that is occasionally intercepted with silver and pewter powder to create a visual contrast.

Kirigane technique was used with both gold and pewter flakes were to outline the trunks and branches. The base was finished in a sparser nashiji. The tray is impressive with its size and detailed decoration. While it is possible that the tray was made earlier.
