SEA BREAM TRAY (Dealer: hotoke) – Red-lacquered wood carving sea bream tray, Showa period, 20th century, Japan. Especially for use of happy event, since the Japanese word “medetai” (auspicious) has the homophone of “tai” (sea bream) as traditional wordplay. Quite a unique type with refined carving and profound make, in such used condition with some flaws as is.
approx. 40 x 31.5 x 2cm (15.74 x 12.40 x 0.78in)
