Antique Japanese lacquer wooden dragon confectionary plate 19c  (Dealer: Sezuan antiques & art) – Faithfully copied from Chinese footed bronze plate as art of ‘utsushi'(Japanese art form of “re-creation”), but by different materials as wood and lacquer. Exactly like the mature chinese bronze plate with details, and amazingly thin-make and right-weight, as a masterpiece expressing the refinedness of craftsmanship in Meiji period. Attached with wooden box signed “Ancient Chinese four‐footed confectionary ware” in black ink. In fine antique condition, with expected minor lacquer-crack and minimum lacquer-exfoliation as seen. approx. D 24.5 cm (9.64in), H 4.5 cm (1.77in)
