Large ‘Kalat’ made of carved and lacquered teak wood which was used to bring offerings to the monasteries during Buddhist ceremonies. 24 cm high and 38 cm of diameter. These objects had a double function and were also used as trays for meals, the guests would sit around it and share the food displayed on it.
Travel diary of Jean Dumoulin
In Burma, when I am invited to eat, we are always sitting on the ground, around a low table on which the food is placed, for someone like me, who is not flexible, it can quickly become complicated and uncomfortable. But it is compensated by the kindness of the welcome and by the discovery of local flavours which are sometimes surprising.
In fairly good condition, some local restorations, small missing pieces, age and use marks (see pictures) but the object is stable and solid.
It will be carefully packaged and shipped with insurance and tracking.
