Decorate a table or counter top with this elegant bronze cooking pot from southern India. The antique urli (temple bowl) has a neoclassical shape, wide and shallow with rolled handles on both sides ending in raised heart-shaped cartouches. An urli is a traditional pot suspended over a fire to cook and serve food in temples and at holy sites on festival days. The name urli is derived from the Tamil word "urulai" which means a round bowl. Smaller urlis were used in homes for cooking and in Ayurveda to make medicines. Today many Indians use them to float flowers in. One could also use this as an impressive centerpiece bowl, or as a fountain or planter in an atrium or on a patio. Excellent original unpolished condition. Two firing cracks in base. Measures 32" diameter x 9.5" high.
