This beautifully hand painted tray set is marked Nippon on the center. This set is not glazed, I have used it as a center piece for my dinning table, but I do not wash it, rather wipe it out with a damp dish cloth. This set originally had a lid and holder, but over the years the base has shrunk so that the 7 pieces cannot fit, so I have used the lid to hold the tray. The sections are all edged with gold and beaded. The tray and holder measure 13' across, and are an exquisite display for the middle of your special dinner.
