Late Qing (1644-1911) demo plaques for lacquer carving. Lacquer colored with cinnabar is applied to a surface that is usually wood, but can also be metal, ceramic, or other durable material. The lacquer must be dried slowly in a moist atmosphere. When dry, another coat is applied until the lacquer is the desired thickness for carving. The dried surface is then painted with a design for the carver to follow as is demonstrated in the first plaque. The second plaque illustrates the completed carving with some of the guide lines still showing. Formerly part of the Paul Spheeris collection.
