Habibi tray is an elegant low-profile, pancake-shaped serving tray in polished brass, stainless, or copper. Each of the metals used to create the Habibi tray is spun and fully polished by hand. As the trays are not lacquered after polishing, the copper and brass versions will naturally oxidize, developing a beautiful patina over time. Should you wish to maintain the highly polished look, these finishes will require regular polishing with an appropriate metal cleaner.
The Habibi tray is wonderful as an independent accessory. The designer has also developed a clever support base that can be used in conjunction with the tray – elevated the tray to create an occasional table. This Habibi Tray Table version is available in a separate listing.
