Funky Found Object

My last trip to Jack & Greg's shop resulted in 
bringing home this little tray.

It caught my eye from the top of a shelf behind 
some less beautiful what-nots.
I love the well-worn patina and 
chippy elegance of it.

The front is hand-painted in a lovely ochre,
and subdued chartreuse green, with bright
accent colors in yellow, red and blue, and details in brown.

The back of the tray has some 
interesting qualities as well...

This little stamped area...

And this printed information:

This tray is about 9 x 12 inches.
I'm not sure what its intended use was,
but it may have been used in serving Sake...

Any thoughts?

Word for the Day:
Ephesians 5:18-21
18 And do not get drunk with wine, 
for that is debauchery, 
but be filled with the Spirit, 
19 addressing one another in psalms and hymns 
and spiritual songs, singing and making 
melody to the Lord with your heart, 
20  giving thanks always and for everything 
to God the Father in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, 
21  submitting to one another out of reverence for Christ.

That's interesting how they stuck a pin and whatnot on the back. It does have some nice character!

Beautiful tray, Revi! Is it lacquered? It looks like it could be Asian, maybe. And it looks a bit luminous. Very pretty.
Great find, as usual.

Wow, what a great find!! I saw one today that reminds me of this one but the one I saw is tiny little. Maybe only 4 x6. I almost brought it home with have inspired me to go back and get it regardless of it's size. And it is not near as cute as yours but I think it was only 8$ :)
