Thai Sticky Rice Bowls from northern Thailand –these gems are made from teak and other rare hand-carved hardwoods. They were mainly used to roll up sticky rice balls wrapped in fresh banana leaves by Thai rice farmers in northeast Thailand before heading out into the rice fields each day for a long days work! Alternatively, the bowls were also used to dry various herbs and spices in the sun by day, especially the many varieties of hot chili peppers used by Thai people extensively in their famous spicy Thai cooking!! Every bowl is unique and different, come in various shapes, sizes, and is 80-100 years old.
Most have handles on them; therefore they can be easily hung with string on the wall as a decorative piece, or better yet, put in the middle of dinette tables for condiments or fruit/veggie baskets. They could also be used by the front or back door on an end table for keys, or other misc. household items!! They are rare because there are only a few bowls left in Thailand, especially ones in decent condition; so I grabbed up over 80 of them about 4 years ago when they were still somewhat plentiful!
There are roughly 40 bowls now available.Regular size bowls are priced at $175.00 each——larger sized or more elaborate bowls are priced at $200.00 each—-shipping via FedEx is cheap, safe,easy+quick —
