Tobacco Leaf Tray 14x14
Each tray is handmade in Vietnam. Lacquer artisans complete each step, from cutting and sanding the wood to applying the artwork, by hand. Once applied, the artwork is given finishing touches, such as genuine gold and silver leaf and handpainted details. The final application of the glossy lacquer is applied in 12 layers, giving the pieces a durable finish. The shining coating shows the true beauty of the original artwork and gives it a unique depth. Caspari Lacquer Trays are an elegant and thoughtful gift for nearly any occasion.

In this design: This vivid design from a Chinese export porcelain dish in Colonial Williamsburg’s collections is popularly called “tobacco leaf.” However, it was actually inspired by Asian plants as depicted on Indian textiles and was a fashionable import into the American South in the late 18th century—early global chic.
