Yangzhou lacquer is an ancient traditional craft with a rich history and is undoubtedly one of the most famous lacquerware in China. The first Yangzhou lacquer dated from the Han dynasty, more than 2000 years ago. The tradition of the hand-made lacquer is an example of carefully detailed workmanship that has been developed over the years. The colourful lacquer is decorated with shells, Gu-shi (combination of cranberry, Qingtian stone, Shoushan stone and shells) and exquisite carvings. In addition to its beautiful design, Yangzhounese lacquer is also characterised by heat, moisture and corrosion resistance.
