This fan shaped tray is used the traditional technique called "Negoro-nuri", which black Urushi lacquer is applied many times under then red Urushi lacquer for the final coating to finish. So the black colour will come out from underneath little by little with use. Long term use will give an additional charm to it. The chisel marks create rich and heavy appearance.
