Carved Milk Jug from Kenya. Carved from a single block of wood and traditionally used to hold milk. It has aged beautifully by use and exposure, and will bring history and authenticity into your home.
Beautiful as an object d'art on any shelf or vignette. We love to display in groups of two or three. Was once waterproof but we reccomend a glass inside if you use it as a vase. Due to it's hand carved nature the bottom of these piece does not sit perfectly flat. We have corrected this with clear silicone bumpers which are easily removed if you choose.
