    Story Behind the Art:
    This workshop is located in the Guangdong region of mainland China. The father is the main person in charge and employs many family members. Day to day operations are run by an aunt while the son is being groomed to take over once his father retires. All of this family greatly adds to the quality and productivity of this factory. Over 300 skilled and non-skilled craftsman work together, passing knowledge and craftsmanship from generation to generation. The working conditions of this group are excellent. The factory provides an excellent lunch each day for the staff. This group attends strictly to the local and international anti-dumping and fair trade practice laws.

  • Tray

    Very small and over priced. I was disappointed when I took it out of the box. It looks cheap and certainly not a conversation piece! I purchased this tray for a "small ottoman" this tray is way small....looks like a toy. If you are looking for a tray that could be used for a plate or a dessert etc. continue to look on. This is a low class look! Sorry overstock, this is the first time I have been so disappointed and feel a bit ripped off!!

  • Great tray!

    This tray is great for those of us with ottoman coctail tables. It is a bit smaller than I expected, but that's my fault for not reading the dimensions beforehand. Overall, it is a great tray, I just wish it was a little bit bigger. The red caligraphy matches my burgundy furniture perfectly!

  • Looks nothing like the photo.

    The item looks nothing like the photo. It is almost entirely black, with only a tiny patch of red visible.

  • Great tray!

    I didn't realize how small this tray was. It's about the size of a 15" laptop if that helps you visualize it. Just a warning to those expecting a full size serving tray. Even so, it is a great tray with beautiful calligraphy

  • Too small

    The appearance and color were accurate from the online picture. The size, however, is quite small. I was expecting something about the size of a cookie sheet. The tray is half that size.
