This is one side of a lacquer paper mache folding. The back is missing. It measures 11" x 14". The center of the design has the trunk of a tree inset with abalone shell. The tree has branches with blooms of mother-of-pearl. The highlight is a bird with Mother-of-Peal and Abalone. This piece has condition problems on all 4 corners. The upper left corner is the worst. Nevertheless, it is an attractive piece to put on an easel or hang on a wall.
