Story Behind the Art:
Fine Chinese home furnishings created by artisans using traditional methods of China's Fujian Province. Built with Philippine mahogany and elm wood, these decor items feature seven layers of lacquer to create a complex, beautiful and sturdy surface. Each piece is then antiqued for a gorgeous, authentic look. The resulting surface has a matte finish, in place of the usual glossy finish. These pieces are based on traditional designs steeped in ancient Asian history, and exhibit many common natural and cultural motifs, often adapted from ancient and beloved Asian art. Because of Fujian's proximity to Japan, many of these designs show a Japanese influence. Motifs include birds, animals and flowers, all of which are meaningful in Buddhist- and Confucian-influenced cultures.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

Thank you. Your feedback will help us create the best experience for our customers.
Bought this to use in my husband's office at work. Most of his colleagues have their office professionally decorated so I can't put "junk" in his office. This is both useful and decorative. Looks like it came from a nice shop. Fit the bill!

It was ok. Nothing great, the caligraphy wasn't too impressive and it rubs off. I know this because I cleaned off a stain with a wet cloth and its permanently stained. I am a little worried about whatever dye was used and that it may get in my food.

I have seen many items like this where the calligraphy looks like someone actually wrote it even though we all know it's a transfer or whatever. This looks like a transfer may have gone onto a sheet of fiberboard and then copied 100 times so that everthing is blurry and just cheap looking.
Did the color match the color displayed onsite? yes but the "calligraphy" looks very mass produced, stamped onto a laminate
