Lacquer trays were one of the most popular items for merchants to bring back from Canton to sell into the growing luxury markets of Britain and America. Luckily we have a highly detailed description of Benjamin Shreve's voyage to Canton on the New Hazard in 1815. Among his investors was Joseph Peabody of Salem, MA who specifically requested a set of 5 tea trays which were commissioned from the lacquer merchant Yinqua.
