Description

Lacquer surface decoration, especially with gold, was refined to the highest level in Japan. In the Museums collection is an elegant black-and-gold-covered lacquer box (ca. 1800) decorated with stylized bamboo and birds. The distinctive burnout pattern on our stunning shawl is based on this ornate box.

Art History

Among lacquer techniques developed to the highest degree in Japan is the use of gold and silver in powdered form, either mixed in to form gold or silver lacquer or sprinkled over lacquered surface to create a graduated gold or silver effect. The resultant works often display great subtlety and delicacy, and maki-e (gold or silver) lacquer is one of the supreme achievements of Japanese decorative art.
