Meat Platter (Ugqoko)

Zulu, Southern Africa

Meat Platter (Ugqoko). Zulu, Southern Africa

 

This fine Zulu meat platter (ugqoko) from Southern Africa was traditionally used to serve meat, namely goat and cattle meat. The platter takes the form of a rectangular bowl with rounded corners, flanked on each end by handles.

The underside of the meat platter is adorned with a beautiful geometric star-shaped design. In traditional houses, the platter would be hung and displayed on the wall with the decorated underside facing outwards. While the surface of the platter's underside exhibits a lovely glossy patina, the other side of the platter has developed a worn surface patina over time.

Ex Private Collection, South Africa

Estimated Period: 1950's
