This large metal tray dates to the early 20th century and is decorated with a gold-and-black design in the Chinoiserie style. A black lacquer finish cloaks the rectangular tray on both sides and offers the perfect canvas for a gilt garden landscape. Hand-painted with gold pigments, the idyllic scene depicts a quiet riverbank dotted with towering pagodas and waterside verandas. Tall willow trees flow in the wind as villagers peer out over the waters. The scene is enclosed by an elegant border of clustered florals and trailing vine scrollwork.

From the collection of Frances and Gary Comer.

“I am particularly fond of PAGODA RED as we have known the family for so long. Betsy is a professional in every way and her intelligent taste comes from a long line of family knowledge in the arts. She and her team are the very best to work with and we find treasures with every visit!”
