Vintage round Ilocano food tray/bowl. This piece is made of split rattan in an intricate tightly-woven one-over-two twill pattern. The skin of the rattan is used on the inside to provide a smooth hard surface to contain the food, the rim is composed of two pieces of bamboo, and the bottom has a circular woven base for stability.

Excellent dark mahogany brown patina, collected in the Philippines during the 1960s, and acquired from a decorator’s personal collection. It would add interest to any décor setting from Japandi, Wabi Sabi or Organic Modern. This piece is solidly constructed, and could be used either for decorative or storage purposes. Display it on a wall or as a part of a larger grouping.
