Lovely handmade decorative silver tea tray with an abundant border of hand-chased chrysanthemum flowers and foliage and a hand-engraved surface surrounding the central panel. The tray rests on four supports decorated with floral work.

This tray reflects on of the four primary decorative elements that appear throughout Chinese decorative arts - the chrysanthemum, prunus, orchid and bamboo. They represent the four seasons - where chrysanthemum embodies autumn - and are also known as the Four Noble Ones or The Four Gentlemen.
