This beautifully carved Hamsa-shaped (Hebrew: חַמְסָה) mahogany serving tray is a traditional symbol of protection from North Africa and the Middle East. This heirloom-quality piece will be something you can pass-on to your children and your grandchildren.
This tray, carved from silky mahogany, is decorated with the traditional “evil eye” an iconic symbol of protection offering the owner protection from the malevolent gaze. The evil eye symbol on this exquisitely carved tray dates back approximately 5,000 years and crosses many religions and cultures.
Charm your guests by using this graceful Hamsa tray to serve cheese, nuts, pretzels, cheese straws, or any snacks. You can use the larger tray to impress your guests by serving tea, coffee, hot chocolate or any other preferred libations. Unlike other merely functional dishes, you don’t have to find room in your cabinets for this because it as this exquisite unique work of art will be perfect displayed on a coffee table, side table, or hanging on your wall.
This original design is handmade in our Seeds of Tradition workshop in Nashville, Tennessee. Due to the handmade nature of this item, each tray is special and unique and will vary. Seeds of Tradition will happily add a personal touch to the back of the tray to customize it for you or as a gift.
