    £65.00 Members' price *


    This tray has been meticulously hand-crafted in Vietnam using the ancient Vietnamese handicraft of lacquerware.

    Each piece has 15-20 coats of lacquer and is created through 100 days of patience and hard work by dedicated artists. The lacquer is decorated with ginkgo - a traditional Vietnamese flower.

    The coffee and espresso colours of the tray are created by layering foils and hand-mixed lacquer colours. The crafting process also uses the traditional Vietnamese arts of mother-of- pearl inlay, burning and inlaying cracked eggshell. As such, the rich variations in colour and texture that occur in creating this lacquerware make each piece uniquely beautiful and a treasure to own.

    A classic yet contemporary piece of homeware. It makes an exquisite home accessory or is ideal as a special gift.
