Lot details

China, 15th-16th century. Of rectangular shape, lacquered in an elegant reddish-brown color, and finely inlaid in mother of pearl overall, at the center with a cartouche depicting a phoenix flying above pine and rockwork, and scrolling ruyi-shaped clouds in the background, surrounded by a cash-diaper pattern with stylized flowerheads. The sides decorated with a band of stylized floral heads borne on leafy stems, within a line border. The reverse also with stylized flowerheads.

Provenance
: From a noted private collection in Pennsylvania, USA.
Condition: Excellent condition commensurate with age, with some old wear, few tiny losses to the inlays, minor flaking to lacquer, few minuscule nicks here and there.

Weight: 499.3 g
Dimensions: Size 35.4 x 26.5 cm

Literature comparison: The style of the mother-of-pearl inlay on the present tray points to a 15th-16th century date. Compare the cash pattern and pine needle inlay in a tray, dated 14th-15th century, illustrated by J. M. White, Masterpieces of Chinese Lacquer from the Mike Healy Collection, Honolulu, 2005, pl. 8. See the cartouche shape on a tiered box and cover, dated 15th-16th century, illustrated in 2000 Years of Chinese Lacquer, Hong Kong, 1993, pl. 92. See the leafy scroll on the reverse of a tray, with a Wanli mark and of the period, illustrated by R. Krahl and B. Morgan, From Innovation to Conformity: Chinese Lacquer from the 13th to the 16th centuries, Bluett & Sons, London, 1989, pl. 32.

Important Changes to Our Terms and Conditions

As part of our ongoing efforts to keep our auctions fair and transparent, we recently updated our terms and conditions. We encourage you to read through these updates carefully (§34-50) to make sure you understand them. These updates are specifically designed to protect all serious and committed buyers from bidding against non-payers, who attempt to inflate prices without the intent of paying their auction bills.

For further reading about non-payers at auction, go here: https://www.zacke.at/aboutnonpayers/.

Main points include:

  • Bidders must complete their due diligence and clarify all questions about the objects before the auction. After the auction, Zacke will not answer questions from bidders unless the purchase price has been paid in full. Of course, this does not apply to questions concerning shipping, insurance, customs, etc.
  • A sale cancellation of any kind after the fall of the hammer is not possible. The only exception to this fundamental rule is our guarantee of authenticity [the Guarantee].
  • A Guarantee Claim, however, can only be raised after the purchase price has been paid in full by the buyer and within 45 days after the auction day.

If you have any questions about our policies, please contact us at office@zacke.at.

By placing a bid, you agree to our Terms of Auction and Terms and Conditions.
