Chinese teak wood serving tray with mother of pearl and brass inlay. Tray is made up of one large central flat piece of wood. This is framed by four separate pieces, which form the edges, joined together at the corners by a rabbit joint. Along the top of the edge is a repeated motif of stems and flowers with the stems in brass and flowers in mother of pearl. This is the same on the face of the tray though the brass stems are longer and the flowers are joined by gourds and peonies. A rectangular section in the center, delineated by a groove, is undecorated. Condition: The wood is dirty and the brass has come out of one corner and two small mother of pearl flowers are missing. One mother of pearl gourd was taped on and the tape has left a residue.
