African Zulu Meat Platter Wood Carved Antique South Africa
The rich patina on the bottom and handles of the platter are obtained by the constant saturation of fat for roasting meat. Platters that have been used for some time will have scraping and cutting marks from the cutting of the meat.
This tribal meat platter is used to carry, cook and serve meat, especially during rituals and ceremonial feasts. There is still a very smoky smell on the wood. Hand crafted in Kwa-Zulu Natal, South Africa, this is a 1950's era platter.
Approximate Dimensions: 34" L X 11" W X 3" H
