Lacquerware Food Tray

$800per item

About

This large wooden tray was carved from a single piece of teak wood and covered in multiple layers of natural tree sap lacquer. Black lacquer was used to fill in the pores of the wood and build up a thick, protective surface. Red cinnabar lacquer (made with an expensive mineral additive) was saved for the last layer. The piece was originally used to hold fruit and small dishes of food and was placed on the floor inside a Thai house and has developed a rich patina from longtime use. Price is for each tray.
