Product Information

Imitating the Qing Dynasty style, this covered court box with a wooden body was painted in traditional red lacquer. The surface of the box was incised and gilt in the qiangjin technique to outline the motif of foliate scrolls in a decorative style. The cover is decorated with a pattern inlaid with baibaoqian technique using soapstones, Baarin Mongolian pyrophyllite, clam shells, mother of pearl and other natural precious materials, carved into layered motifs of peach tree, canary, pomegranates, flowers, mountain rocks, etc. The peach tree is the tree of longevity in Chinese folklore, as the proverb says, "The pomegranate blesses posterity with a hundred children, the peach offers a thousand years of longevity". This box and cover bear the symbols of endless happiness, longevity and wealth.

作品為仿清宮廷捧盒,木胎,運用傳統髹漆技法,製成紅色漆胎,盒體用雕填技法,勾勒卷草圖案,具有極強的裝飾性,盒蓋圖案採用傳統百寶鑲嵌工藝精製而成,選用壽山石、巴林石、螺鈿等多種天然名貴材料,雕琢成蟠桃樹、玉鳥、花卉、山石等圖案。桃樹是長壽之樹,因此民諺中有“榴開百子福,桃獻千年壽”之說,作品賦有喜事疊來、長壽富貴的美好寓意。
