Mendi


ex Private Canadian Collection

Collected in situ during the early 80s this elegant leaf shaped bowl is beautifully carved.

Remarkably thin and strong  the bowl has slightly raised edges and an intriguing funnel shaped handle.  Both of these elements were clearly conceived to facilitate pouring and a darker patina on the back of the back of the bowl may even indicate some heating.   

A lug on the back further attests to the bowl's usage.  

Ca. 20th Cent 

15"
