View More Pictures

This lacquerware wooden tray features a unique octagonal form containing a design of the bat design in the center. The edge of the tray is elegantly decorated with mother of pearl designs of arabesque in rhythmic lines and whorls of the vines. In Korea and China, a bat design has been used as a symbol of fortune that brings the happiest life imaginable. The houseware coated with natural lacquer has long been used in East Asia for its glossy beauty as well as its practicality for being strong, watertight and antibacterial.
