Chiyu Tray

A zelkova wood tray in a practical size to suit various everyday requirements. Monma Tansu has been making fine Sendai *tansu* (chests) for more than 100 years. It is one of Sendai's most famous makers, carrying on a tradition that has lasted for nearly four centuries. The chests and other furnishings made at Monma Tansu are steeped in the history of the samurai. In the 17th century, the lords of northern Japan lavished fine wares on themselves, including Sendai *tansu*. Monma Tansu also makes other furnishings using the same fine materials and craft methods. This tray is made of word from the zelkova tree. The wood is hard, heavy and dense, and is most recognised for its beautiful and strong grain.
