Beautifully carved out a single piece of wood.

37 cm x 20 cm. I can pack in box with lots of padding and courier to any Postnet for just R99!

Baluster form, on three square tapered feet and with four handles, all carved as a single piece.

There are age related line cracks in the wood near the bottom.

Fantastic decorative object and a great gift. 

Pleasing patina with natural tree rings and appropriate age wear.

These are hand carved by people with specific skill, the center hollowed out with red-hot poker.They are used traditionally only by men and are gripped between the thighs while the man milks the cow. Only men are allowed to handle and milk the cows.

The milk is not stored in these but is transferred to another container for storage. The milk pail is then hung upside-down on a pole to dry.
