ALART Aluminum Shippou Pattern & Lacquerware Serving Tray
This serving tray is the result of a collaboration between a matte, subdued aluminum tray and a deep, moist Echizen lacquerware tray.
The "Shippou" is a pattern in which parallel circles of the same size are overlaid one quarter on top of the other, resulting in a continuous combination of a diamond-like shape and a petal-like shape. It signifies peace, happiness, and prosperity of offspring in an endless chain of circles.
It can be used as a serving tray for appetizers or Japanese sweets. In addition, the lacquer and aluminum trays can be used separately, so they can be used in a wide range of ways to match the atmosphere of your table.
Four round urethane rubbers are attached to the back side of the aluminum plate to prevent slipping, scratches on the table, and to make it easier to lift.
