The base of the tray has a double-bordered landscape scene in white
litharge, with a pavilion and figures. The ground, tree trunks, birds
and outlines are in hakue gold leaf. The side panels have hakue
bamboo and plum designs, with whirls in the corners. In the distance
there is a post-like object, with a bird standing on top. The motif
may have some particular meaning, but this is unclear at present.
Square trays were used for such purposes as displaying tea-caddies,
or holding wine cups at parties.
