This is a beautiful antique Indian Kadai (cooking bowl) that was handmade anywhere up to 100 years ago by Kadai craftsmen, using traditional tools and techniques. It is made from thick steel plates hand-beaten into shape using concave dollies and then cold riveted together. It has its magnificent original hand-wrought handles and rings.
As a result, this kadai is a fantastic example, perhaps a 1 in a 100 bowl, the quality of which is hard to come by. It will make a superb centre piece in any garden.
Kadais were traditionally commissioned by rich merchants or landowners to feed their workers and passing pilgrims (to increase their karma and ensure themselves a good afterlife).
This, and all our other antique kadais have been transformed into fabulous fire bowls that you can cook on. This particular kadai comes with a low stand (tudor) making it the perfect height for using as a fire pit, intimate cooking on with family, whilst creating a stunning garden feature.
