Ideal for calling cards, ongoing outgoing correspondence sent by dove, letters in need of wax seal application, or, you know, mail and keys. We love these when set flush with their matching counterparts (the medium tray set together with the small tray is the same length as the large tray). You've got mail!
About the line: Founded in 1897, Futagami began producing beautiful brass altar fittings for Japanese Buddhist monasteries and the zen tradition continues today. Hand smelted, poured, finished, filed, and polished in the Toyama prefecture, these exceptionally elegant brass pieces are a pleasure to hold and use. The labor-intensive process, which includes molding into layers of fine-silted earth, is designed to highlight the distinctive "ihada" finish, a subtly rough surface texture that brilliantly plays up the brass' natural tendency towards use-based patina. Use these, love them, and watch them get better with age.
