A Short History of Kamakura-bori
Kamakura-bori is a form of lacquerware from Kamakura, Japan that dates back to the latter part of the Kamakura Period (1192 - 1333). It is made by carving patterns in wood, then lacquering it with layers of red and black,and then polished as the finished product. Even today, Kamakura-bori is made only in the city ofKamakura.
This Kamakura-bori serving tray was purchased new in the early 1960's by my wife's father in their hometown of Kamakura, Japan. It wasalready 15 or 16 years old when we received itas a giftfrom my wife's mother when my wife took me to Japan in early 1979 to meet her family for thefirst time. The tray is now about 50 years old, half a century, and still in excellent condition with onlyfive very small nicks, two on the outer rim, one on the inside rim, and two on the bottom of the tray.
