Today we are offering for sale an unique and rare Asian black lacquer with inlaid mother-of-pearl photo frame. This extremely well-crafted piece features iridescent mother of pearl inlaid work in Asian motifs, with a Navy Aviator military insignia at the top. This frame was apparently made during a war (WWI, WWII, or Korean War) and brought back home as a commemorative memento. The frame quality indicates it was likely made in Korea, a country famous for its’ lacquer ware, but it could be of Japanese or Chinese origin as well. Currently the frame holds the photo of a distinguished Navy man, and it is signed “Always your Star, Adovio (sp?)” This is a great opportunity to buy an elegant and meaningful frame to display the photo of a loved one who served in the military. Great looking, special piece to display and add to your collection… Fresh to the market!
