|@A typical Ryukyuan circular footed tray. The rising border and
pedestal are both curved. The exposed surfaces are cinnabar-lacquered,
and the inside of the pedestal stand is coated with black lacquer.
The centre of the tray is undecorated. From the tray rim down, the
outside surface is gilt line engraved, with a design of the Ryukyu
royal crest, the left-tomoe, and peony sprays over a circular
diaper ground. The short tails of the tomoe and the relatively
slight degree of overlap in the diaper ground are design characteristics
of late period Rykukyuan lacquerware.
