Lacquer has been used in Chinese Arts since about 200 BC. Lacquer come from the sap of a Lacquer tree ( Native to Southern China ). It is harvested much like Maple Sap in the United States and Canada. Lacquer is an extremely tedious process. Many coats are needed to create a thickness that can be carved. As many as 100 to 150 coats may be used on some pieces to achieve the desired thickness. Each layer must dry before the next can be applied. It takes up to 4 months to make a single piece. The most popular coloring used in Lacquer goods is called Cinnabar, which is made from mercury. The name comes from its dark red color. A fine quality Chinese cinnabar lacquer covered case, of round form with carving, deeply carved with flower, the four sides finely carved in shallow relief with symmetric patterns, interior and base lacquered black. A small circular carved red lacquer box and cover. The cover finely carved with flower.
