This exquisite decades old Kooja is a rare find that continues to slowly become a relic of an era long gone. Exceptionally crafted in bronze, this radiant vessel is set on a raised circular base, and follows traditional form and design with its characteristic large bowl at the bottom and a cinched in neck. The kooja’s handle is kept simple and in a looped form and juts out from the screw top lid allowing for easy use. The lower half of the piece has been engraved in a Tamil script by it’s previous owners in a traditional hand hammered fashion. This beautiful vessel has seen decades of use and bears proof of its age on its richly patinated surface.
This beautiful kooja has been procured from Kumbakonam and is estimated to be between 70 and 80 years of age.
Styling and usage: This radiant piece makes for a wonderful decor accent when set in the kitchen or on a floating shelf amidst a gallery wall arrangement.
