Showing much use on the natural, undecorated interior of the bowl, this four-footed prestige tray shows a blackened underside with ridges and bumps in typical fashion. This was actually the more visible side seen while the bowl hung awaiting its use during rituals and important feasts. The thin-walled vessel measures 12.75" in length (handle to handle) and is 8.50" wide. Height is 2". The condition is fine but with an old split in one handle (stable), and a small loss to rim from a knife cut etc. South Africa, early-mid 20th C. Provenance: Old private collection, Florida, USA; Michael Lagerman, NY and FL, USA, since 1980's.
