A wonderful, antique wooden pot full of rustic character. Originally from Tibet, this beautiful pot transports me to the wild Himalayan mountains. A place of freedom, beautiful cold sunrises, icy morning air that hurts the back of your throat, earthy textures and rich woody, campfire smells. To me, it embodies a simpler time and a more primitive, rustic way of life. 

Once used to make curd, this pot has a wonderful smoky smell and the most beautiful marks and scrapes from years of use. Handcrafted from wood with a lovely, dark brown tone, it has simple, decorative turned ridges and three beautiful thin, golden metal strips, attached using beautiful old nails. The pot still has it's original lid which is easily removed. Beneath the lid are two small holes, presumably so it could be hung during the curd making process. There are a few cracks in the wood which appear to have been repaired at some point in it's life with what could be mud or clay. All of this just adds to it's beautiful, rustic character. This is such a unique, decorative piece which would look wonderful styled with dried stems or simply displayed alone. It measures:
