    Old 1920's Kadai - Indian Fire Bowl From Rajasthan - 90cm

    SKU:A01667

    £495

    Our old Indian Kadai fire bowls date from the 1920's and have been hand selected in Rajasthan. 
    Recycling metal has been a tradition in India for centuries. These fire bowls were skilfully made from re-purposed metal collected by nomadic tribes’ people known as the "Gaduliya Lohars,” who are a caste of itinerant metal workers in Rajasthan and Gujarat.
    Favoured by the Rajput kings for their blacksmithing skills for weapon making, the name Lohar means "smith" and Gaduliya is the name of their distinctive type of ox cart dating back to the 16thC.
    Kadais are constructed by riveting or hammer welding plates of iron together, they are extraordinarily strong and the end results achieve a pleasing effect with their unique patchwork.
    Originally, Kadais were used as cauldrons for large scale catering at Indian festivals and weddings. Like most utility items, they were constructed for practical purpose, so in those days they would have been sat on a pile of glowing embers which would have been feed by a team of dedicated kitchen servants to make sure the fire below was always well tended. Now they have become popular because of their use as braziers in the gardens of Rajasthani Palace hotels in the winter.
    Useful all year round at gatherings of family and friends to keep warm, or indeed to grill food on at barbeques, they make a perfect addition to any garden.
    When not in use you can plant them up with bright blousy annuals.
    For more information about the Lohars. Https://unesdoc.unesco.org/ark:/48223/pf0000061262.locale=en

    Includes Stand & Grill

    Supplied with a stand and grill these medium size kadai are the perfect size for sitting around at night or for use as a barbecue.
