Product Information

Shaped like the mother of pearl, the tray is painted with flower and butterfly patterns. The ancient word “耋” means longevity and is a homonym with “butterfly”, which is a symbol of happiness and longevity as well. This tray is considered to be a jewelry container for the Western aristocrat back in the days.

本品形制極為特殊,呈貝殼形,內中心繪蝴蝶花卉紋飾。,「蝶」與「耋」諧音,因此蝴蝶寓有「壽至耄耋」的美好寓意。本品當時應為西方貴族放置珠寶所用的珠寶盤。
