|@A tundabun with an inro lid, supported by four cabrioles
with a floral-shaped skirting panel. The outer surface of the tray
is coated with cinnabar lacquer, and the inside with black lacquer.
The top of the lid is decorated with a hakue design of a landscape
with pavilions, and the lid shoulder and bottom of the tray with ogival
panels of peony scrolls on a circular diaper ground. The lid and body
have wave-patterned edges, and the legs a clematis design. Black lacquer
lines embellish the rocks, figures, island, peony scrolls and clematis.
This decoration is one commonly found style of hakue. The tray
contains 9 small jade dishes, each decorated with hakue dragons,
plum and circular diaper. Tundabun is Chinese-style ceremonial
ware, used for presenting food to distinguished guests at receptions.
