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.
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.

Quality made. Fast shipping. Would recommend. Thank-youRead More
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.Read More
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,Read More

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!!Read More

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