Meiji period (1868 - 1912) beautifully carved tray in the shape of a folded banana leaf, so the viewer can appreciate both sides of the leaf from a single vantage point. (Banana leaves were often folded to make a stronger serving plate.) Delicate and sophisticated carving as burl wood is very difficult to carve.
