Pair of small 18th century Chinese hexagonal mother-of-pearl inlaid wooden dishes. One depicting a scene of sparring soldiers and the other depicting a garden with a small house.
(Each) Diameter: 5 1/4 in.


The dishes are in good condition with no visible chips, or major loses or cracks. Light wear throughout, as expected. As shown in the listing images, there are several scattered areas with losses to the mother-of-pearl inlay, which does not significantly affect the overall appearance of the dishes. To the upper right part of the dish captured left in the listing, there are two scratches, one measuring 2 1/2 in. and the other 3/4 in. The other dish, left in the listing, has an area where the inlaid layer is peeled off and not completely affixed to the dish surface, approx. 1 1/4 in. Wear to the underside. The dish, left in the listing, has residue along the underside. When inspected under UV light, there is no visible sign of restoration. Please contact us for a detailed condition report. Please note that the lack of a condition statement does not imply perfect condition. Email with any condition questions.
