This tea tray is made with wood ash glaze, with a smooth and glossy glaze surface and a thick and solid body, giving it a sense of antique elegance, tranquillity, and warmth. The hand-painted picture is vivid and natural, depicting lifelike pomegranates.
In ancient China, pomegranates symbolized a prosperous and auspicious life with abundance, good fortune, and prosperity. The pomegranate is red both inside and outside, symbolizing a vibrant life and passionate individuals. As the pomegranate has numerous seeds, people use it as a symbol of wishing for a large and prosperous family, and the ancients referred to it as ‘a thousand chambers with the same membrane, a thousand children as one’.
This tea tray is made using the overglaze technique, with vibrant and full colours in the painted design. Each lid bowl is individually hand-painted by skilled artists, making each one unique and machine-printed decals cannot compare with.
