Excerpt from Notes on the History of Lacquer: A Paper Read Before the Japan Society of London

In the eighth century the official State department for lacquer-making appears to have been abolished, and the Emperor Mommu appointed twenty well-known artists to study the production of works in lacquer, and ordered them to sign' their names on. The articles they produced, so that inferior work might be the more readily detected. In the same period an order was issued commanding every subject possessing land to plant from forty to one hundred trees in five years, according to the amount of ground. Taxes were ordered to be received in lac in lieu of rice, the ordinary means of payment.
