19th Century Bronze Urli or Planter from South East Asia

Product #: DEC-21

A solid bronze urli from Kerala, India, circa 1870. This hand cast vessel has wonderful patina and traditional form—including scrolled handles and heart-shaped details. Still used for preparing food over a fire at weddings and other celebrations in South East Asia (see last image for charring on bottom), the urli also offers a peaceful presence in home or garden when filled with plants, floating flowers and/or candles, or nothing at all. 
Dimensions: 32" diameter x 9.50" height. Weighs approximately 90 pounds.
