They are a sign of status and good taste, and presenting food in this way looks impressive, making the dishes themselves appear much more delicious under the gleam of precious metal. The first trays appeared in Japan over 1300 years ago, but they looked nothing like the ones we see today in stores. Japanese trays resembled simple wooden boards at first. Later, they were coated with black lacquer, adorned with stones and landscapes made of white quartz, and these items are now known as bonseki. They were used in Japan for tea ceremonies, known for their beauty and sophistication. In Russia, trays appeared much later - in the 16th century. Initially, they resembled simple wooden dishes that were painted with bright and colorful patterns. Later, boards with borders made of gold and silver, decorated with intricate engravings, became popular. The first iron trays were produced in the 18th century in Nizhny Tagil. Tin models were huge in size and were called tablecloths, over time they were reduced to the size we are familiar with today but did not lose their functionality. In the 19th century, trays were painted with bright floral patterns. It is worth noting that trays were not always used specifically for serving food. They were produced as stands for samovars, hung on walls instead of paintings, and even taken on journeys to put under paper and write down impressions. In wealthy homes, there was always a silver tray at the entrance, where guests would leave their business card. This tradition is still maintained at elegant formal events and social gatherings to this day.
