Wooden Tibetan Dough Bowl
Tibet, circa 1900
These unusual, rectangular wooden bowls are made from willow wood, roughly hollowed out to form these large containers. They have been sourced from the eastern part of Tibet, near the border with Qingha province.
Originally they were used for kneeding dough, and each one shows the age and patina associated with years of use, incorporating a real sense of Chinese history.
Today, they make unusual home accents that can be used as large fruit bowls or as an interesting centrepiece to a dining table.
Each one varies slightly in size, shape and patina.
