Created in the 19th century in Java, Indonesia this cast iron vessel is shaped like a giant bowl. The bowl itself is 13 inches deep and is crafted with an elegant curve that gives way to an outward flattening top rim. With the stand the vessel is 20 inches tall and reaches a diameter of 40 inches . Together the stand and vessel are visually striking, the rich dark brown of the vessel is like a dark and reflective espresso bean blending with the mat black of the stand. This piece is often used as an outdoor fire place, its two pieces can easily be moved and re-positioned to fit the layout of your landscape. A creative garden lover may choose to use it as planter, being that the earthy nature of this vessel blends so well with the outdoors.
