This is a lovely antique teak Mancala board game sourced from Northern India and upcycled into a superb jewellery tray.
Mancala is a traditional African board game...a game so old that the earliest evidence of the game are fragments of a pottery board and several rock cuts found in Ethiopia dated by archaeologists to between the 6th/7th century AD.
This authentic item is hand carved giving it a unique shape, texture and history.
Over time the piece has taken on a unique vintage patina that could never be copied.
Size: W21cm x D42cm x H7cm.
Scaramanga's wooden items are not new or made to look old. They may have small marks and scratches on them and there may be some variation in their colour, which are consistent with their age and original use. We feel these add to their character and appeal.
