Horn Heirloom Tray

Horn tray of plenty.
Ankole, a breed of cattle native to Africa, are known for their large and distinctive, beautifully colored horns. These small, polished trays are cut by hand from ethically sourced Ankole horn (it’s a food by-product), and no two are exactly alike. We love them for organizing desktop doodads (lookin’ at you, rogue paper clips!), perched on a small table for housing your keys and spare change, or set on top of a vanity for displaying jewelry, candles, and perfume.

Details & Materials -
6" L x 4" W x 0.5" H, weighs 2 ounces
Care & Notes -
Because this tray is made of pure horn, which is made up of keratin protein, there are special considerations for its proper care. If necessary, wipe clean with a soft cloth. It is important to avoid leaving your horn items near heat sources or in direct sunlight, as warm temperatures can cause the horn to dry out or change shape.
