ABOUT THIS GOLD OUTLINED LACQUERWARE DISH

 This gold outlined lacquered dish is one of the finest manifestations of Mexican Folk Art. It was crafted by the multi awarded Mario Agustín Gaspar, one of the Great Masters of Mexican Folk Art and one of the best gold lacquerware artists in Mexico

Some pieces are decorated with colored oil paintings and gold and some are decorated with bronze instead of gold.  This dish is completely decorated with gold using a beautiful geometric pattern over a black background, only a master of this technique could achieve such splendid piece of art.  The back of the dish displays the beauty of the wood.

Lacquerware has been produced in México since pre columbian times and is as good as the one produced in Asia in terms of quality and beauty.
