Korean Najeon Chilgi Tray. Lovely black with mother of pearl inlay. It is a wonderful shrimp design done in sparkling creams, pinks and blues. It has a 13 in diameter and is 1.4 deep. It is in good condition and does have a few minor marks that are consistent with age.
The technique of decorating objects with mother of pearl in Korea evolved into a unique art form called Najeon Chilgi around the arrival of the Goryeo Dynasty (918-1392). Because the Goryeo artisans produced such splendid works of art, Najeon Chilgi soon became one the dynasty's major artistic contributions. The most common and highly developed method of decorating the art works was to inlay the mother of pearl designs onto the pieces then glaze them with lacquer. Inlaying such extraordinary splendid and detailed mother of pearl motifs into the surface of hard wood was only achieved by Korean craftsmen.
