Scaramanga is very pleased to offer this rustic and very primitive-looking hand-carved Naga grain grinding table. It’s an authentic traditional piece from early 1900s and interestingly is a grinding table from Nagaland in Northern India.
Today this striking piece would make an excellent coffee table and of course...conversational piece.
The table was originally used by the Naga tribes of remote North East India as a grinding table for grains such as millet. The three holes in the centre are where the grains would be held and pounded and ground into a powder using long wooden poles.
Carved from a single hardwood timber log, the stunning piece has a rich, dark brown patina. Why not take on this lovely item and continue its long life with more love and waxed polishes.
Hand-Carved Naga Table size: W180cm x D83cm x H42cm.
The primitive nature of this item gives it an authentic beauty. You can see and appreciate every curve and undulation on its surfaces. The table originally the table had gently sloped sides. We have levelled the top so it can be used for cups and glasses.
