    We are a set of three blackened brass trays. We can be arranged neatly into a compact unit for all your precious items or displayed in endless arrangements to your heart’s content. The more we're used, the more interesting we get!

     

  • Curator's Notes

     

    The classic shape and Kuro-Mura casted surface on these trays gives them an antique appearance. This traditional method of casting mixes pigments with Japanese lacquer (Urushi) giving a unique texture and sophisticated appearance. Their weight feels substantial and appropriate for daily use while the slow oxidization of the brass makes its coloration and texture look richer over many years of usage.
