Rare set "en suite" in Japan lacquer of a Budai + Ryoshi bako + Suzuri bako

This set of lacquer, of exceptional quality, represents a pair of peacocks near a stream. On a background of lacquer nashiji (gold powder) the decorations are in hira and taka maki-e (flat areas and reliefs), gold leaves and mother-of-pearl engravings for some parts of the plumage and heart of the peonies. It is particularly rare to find a complete set for writing. The Bundaï (writing table) where lacquer polychrome especially for the watercourse brings depth to the scene. It rests on 4 carved corner feet also decorated with gold. The angles of the tray are closed by gilded copper fittings carved with chrysanthemum. The suzuri bako (writing desk) with similar decoration has inside the lid a bridge spanning the stream where the work of lacquer mokume (imitation wood grain) is superb precision. The mizu-ire (water pourer) is gilded copper chiseled with chrysanthemum decoration. The Ryoshi bako (document box) also includes, inside the lid, the decoration of the bridge spanning the river. An interior tray presents a decoration of small bamboo rafts among the waves and a floral decoration. All the decorations continue on the sides of the boxes.

Origin: Japan. Time: Meiji (1868-1912).

Bundaï dimensions: 63,5x36,5xH13,5cm. Ryoshi bako: 41x32,5xH13,5cm.
