Zulu Hand-Carved Platter

Wooden Hand-carved Dishes ("Umcwembe")
This platter and smaller dishes like it were obtained from a "Sangoma" (Witchdoctor) and as such, are considered very lucky. We have four, the platter, two smaller dishes and a beautiful double plate (usually a wedding gift; symbolical of the lasting bond between two people). These are old. Made before western style plates were available. These are collector's items and sold alone or as a set.

Made from the "Vangazi" (Blood Tree). No plates made today are made with this tree's wood. Measurements on request.

Wedding Plate: $1000.00
Platter: $700.00
Single Plates: $300.00 each
