Craftsmanship of this tray is intricate, it is amazing how the artist could create such a delicate work with complicate pattern, and each of those wires used to form the pattern is actually two very thin wires(as thin as human's hair) twisted together into one. And on those spots that were not filled with enamel, they were gilt, which presented a golden dragon in the center. There are also patterns depicting many kind of oceanic species. Please view at the photos and enjoy the beauty of it.I have seen quite some Chinese silver antique with enamel, but this one is of totally different, much higher level. Not sure if it was made for any royal family of that era. Suggested to have it clean very carefully to show gilt area. Can not see any enamel loss. Slight age and use wear.
