This vintage gourd container is from East Africa (probably Kenya). The entire perimeter of the outer surface is decorated with incised art. The skin of the gourd is smooth and of uniform thickness. The container, which can be used as a drinking cup has a woven vegetative (grass?) base that is very stable and it allows the container to be oriented in many angular positions. Very nice and in excellent condition.

Maximum Diameter = 9 cm ; Height = 13 cm ; Weight = 118 gm
