Vintage Tutsi Basket-Weave Covered Gourd Container - Burundi

$499.99

This vintage gourd, used for liquid storage and transport - mostly milk - is covered by basket weaving for extra protection. Milk gourds are common throughout East Africa where cattle is important to the economy and milk consumption is important to their diet. This style of gourd is unique to the Tutsi of Burundi and this one is an old, used one, with great patina and evidence of its use.

Including the acrylic stand which we provide, this decorative gourd measures 10 1/2" tall x 10 1/2" in diameter. The stand itself is 1 1/2" of this height => the gourd is therefore 9" tall.
