Created from a single block of wood, this hundred-year-old tray made in Shanxi province charms with its rusticity and organic form. Once used by merchants to showcase their wares, the tray has aged beautifully, marked with time and history, distinguished by natural grain and knots. We love its casual, sculptural form and see it heaped with wonderful citron, fresh oranges or a collection of art books.
