Two vermillion carp surfing above the turbulent waves in details and movement that reflect the traditional Japanese design motif. This exquisite cinnabar lacquer bon tray retains much of the elegant artistry of the Meiji era. However, its assembly reveals a technique belonging to a later Taisho period, when carving hundreds of layers of lacquer became too time consuming to satisfy the worldwide demand. Instead, a plaster mold was first formulated on a bamboo and wood frame, and finished with layers of lacquer. The result is no less impressive. Granting that the tray is somewhat fragile, there are only a few touch-ups; overall it remains in very good condition.
