Chinese export mother of pearl dish. Item 4510.This Chinese export mother of pearl dish is shaped as a leaf and engraved with a simple leaf like pattern inside an engraved border. The length is 127 mm (5 inches) and the width 100 mm (4 inches). It is in very good condition and displays a lovely play of colour (I’ve tried to show this in the various photos). It would date from the late 1800’s.
Mother of pearl can be moulded or flattened after immersion in hot water.
