Simple lines, a modest form, and a layer of hand-brushed lacquer give this petite Qing-dynasty tray a provincial charm that recalls the warmth of home. The dark, red-brown lacquer finish has weathered with time to reveal the pine wood underneath and simple iron staples reinforce the beveled corners. A tray like this would have been used to serve tea or food to friends and family gathered on traditional kang daybeds. Today, we love using small trays like this as serving platters or dishes for jewelry, glasses, and other accessories.

“PAGODA RED was extremely supportive in helping to pull accessory options together for the Lake Forest Showhouse. After providing them with details and our vision on how we were looking to finish our space, Laurene helped curate options that made it easy for us to edit and finalize. It's also no surprise that the unique pieces we used in our showhouse space were some of the first to sell.”
