Overall Condition Good. Most of our pieces have spent decades on at least two continents, and have been treasured by several owners.   Small splits, scrapes and cracks are a normal part of their patina attesting to their age and extensive use.  We examine each piece carefully when we receive it and report any damage we find in our listings.  Please look carefully at the pictures which may also reveal condition and damage.
Damage/Repair Damage on handle

Additional information:  This well carved and used tray shows much handling and good age. It is carved in a single hard wood locally found. Such trays were used with great formality to serve meat (especially goat and cattle) during various rituals and in special events like weddings.
