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 gorgeous, original hand-wrought handles and rings, unusual hatchings (makers marks) around the rim, and as a result is a fantastic example, the quality of which is hard to come by – around 1 in a 100 bowls. 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 firebowls that you can cook on. This particular kadai comes with a low (tudor) stand making it the perfect height for using as a fire pit, cooking on with the family or friends and creating a stunning garden feature.
It also comes with a holi grill for cooking. This allows for easy refuelling (removing the centre piece rather than the whole grill) and acts as a shelf on which to place a myriad of wonderful cooking accessories, perfect for entertaining and alfresco dining.
This Kadai set will be sent by pallet to UK destinations using the Palletways network and European destinations with the best carrier for that specific country.
