African Old Zulu Telephone Wire Gourd

$56.25 $75.00

This small Old Telephone Wire Zulu Gourd was used to hold powdered snuff or small quantities of medicines or magic potions from a Shaman’s pharmacy. One of the most impressive things about tribal art is its ability to convert everyday raw materials into something special and beautiful. Consider the humble gourd for example, also called a pumpkin calabash or squash), once you have scooped the flesh out (sometimes good to eat, sometimes not), you are left with a thin rind which dries hard and watertight. An ideal container in a world where there are no bottles, cans or plastic. This is a vintage unique and a wonderful item to display in your home or give as a gift.

Shows age, but overall in good condition.

4 Inches Tall
2 3/4 x 2 3/4 Inches Wide Bottom
