This divine Japanese antique lacquerware plate was sourced in Shiga prefecture, adjacent to Kyoto, in a gorgeous old antique store - which we could have spent days in! Alas, short on time we only made a few purchases - including this one for its unusual, modern design - featuring 2 flying cranes and stylised pinetrees.
Tsuru (Cranes) and Matsu (Pine) symbolise good luck and longevity, strength and stability and is popularly seen at weddings. This stunning little plate would make an ideal gift for Japan loving 'lovers'! In a certain light the cranes appear to be flying off the plate.
Featuring handpainted red/vermilion, black, gold and raised silver lacquer (cranes) ... It's a little bit gorgeous!
Good, some faint scuffing which is to be expected in vintage lacquer.
Size: 18 cm diameter
