I bought this tray just because I thought it looked so beautiful, figured I’d find a use when it arrived. And boy is it! The red is deep ruby, and the lacquer catches the light as it crosses the grain, it almost shimmers. I highly recommend this even if just for a decorative tray!
Gorgeous lacquerware. The colour is deep and warm and works beautifully with the tea ware I purchased to accompany it. Shipping was incredibly fast, and Yuko was a delight to buy from.
Beautifully made, authentic product. Arrived from Kyoto in 4 days. Super protective packaging. I will definitely buy from the company again!
