    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!!

  • Black Calligraphy Tray (China)

    Very pretty ... A little smaller than i exspected..The add says 13 inches witch it is but the sides are angled so the flat bottom pice is only about 10/10 1/2 inches..but still nice

  • Beautiful tray

    This is a really beautiful little tray. Much better than I expected for the price!

  • 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!

  • More decorative than practical

    Beautiful design detail and color. My only issue is with the staining that bled upon contact of water. I applied a clear wood sealing gloss but now I use more for decorative purposes.

  • Calligraphy Tray

    The size of the tray is exactly what I needed. Most trays are too big to sit on a vanity. This one is just right,

  • Looks Great!

    Looks great. Exactly what I wanted. The tray does seem somewhat bigger by the pictures but is true to the measurements provided. Will look great on m table.
