Product Information

Inspired by a Qing dynasty baibaoqian lacquerware, this piece was created by inlaying gold lacquer within traditional thin lacquer. Using black lacquer as the base colour, the top of the box is inlaid with a mosaic of natural materials including mother-of-pearl, sea-ear shell (shijueming), sapphire, and jadeite, creating an intricate and exquisite design out of seemingly random placements of gemstones. The image adopts the theme of plum blossoms, which was inspired by a poem by Lin Bu, a poet of the Northern Song dynasty. It describes a scenery of aromatic flowers casting faint shadows over a clear shallow pond under the moonlight at dusk, the beauty of which makes this vessel a masterpiece among all baibaoqian lacquerwares.

作品以金漆鑲嵌傳統薄胎漆器工藝製作,通體髹黑漆為底,為仿製清代作品。盒面鑲嵌螺鈿、石決明、青玉、翡翠等天然玉石,整體佈局亂中有序,配色巧妙。圖案以梅花為題材,出自典故宋・林逋《林和靖集・卷二・山園小梅》:「疏影橫斜水清淺,暗香浮動月黃昏」。風格獨特而不失莊重,實屬百寶嵌中的精美佳作。
