Large 19th Century Chinese Export Black Lacquer Wooden Serving Tray

 Found in France, this very large 19th century black lacquer wooden tray dates to the period of Napoleon III circa 1848-1870.. An ornately hand painted scene in gold chinoiserie features a grand procession in front of an imperial palace displayed on an unfurling Chinese scroll at the center of the tray. A double border of elegantly scrolled leaves form a perimeter around the central theme. A striking piece to be exhibited on a wall or tabletop easel.
