Those are amazing. Not to my taste though. I'd take one of your grandmother's slate tiles please! :mrgreen:

You can find a lot of the stone carving in the town of Zhaoqing, Guangzhou. They are stone used for Chinese ink painting but also works well as a tea tray.

As for the stone wheel tray. It was a stone mill for rice. The top part is missing and the base was improvised for tea brewing.
