RARE Karen Hill Tribe Hand Carved Wooden Plate

NaturalLacquer & Real Gold Leaf

100% Hand Made

Free Stand Included

Hi friends... I recently returned from another fantastic antique picking journey through the Golden Triangle. This time I was fortunate enough to come across a stash of old authentic handmade boxes and plates made with teakwood, natural lacquer and real gold leaf. Plates of this quality are hard to find these days as cheap Chinese made copies have taken over the market. However, these are the Real McCoy. Although many of these plates and boxes are in almost new condition, they date back to the 1930's and were designed by and made under the direction of the shopkeeper's late father who was a master woodcarver. She had a stash of these stored away in a side room in her shop since she was forced to move to a smaller shop (note the photo of me with the Karen Hill Tribe women above). I was immediately impressed with them and I bought the entire lot. Now I am passing on this great deal to you. Theseare not reproductions, they are authentic 100% hand carved teak wood boxes decorated with real gold leaf and finished with natural lacquer. One or more of these will make a great decorative addition to your home or office.Thanks for your time and consideration. I have included a brief history of the Karen People below.

DON'T LET THIS UNIQUE OPPORTUNITY PASS YOU BY... BUY IT NOW!

Size: Approx 13 inches in diameter. Can be seen in photos above.

Materials: 100% teakwood, gold leaf & all natural lacquer

Thanks for your time and consideration... Dobuydon

BRIEF HISTORY OF THE KAREN PEOPLE

For centuries much of the population of northern Thailand has been composed of ethnic groups commonly known as 'hilltribes'. The largest of these is the Karen group numbering around 400,000 in Thailand.

The two main Karen groups in Thailand are the Sgaw and Pwo Karen. The Karen Hilltribes Trust works with the largest, the Sgaw Karen, who live in the Khun Yuam and Mae La Noi districts of the Mae Hong Son Province.

Their history in northern Thailand can be traced back to the twelfth century. It is thought that Karen originally came from Tibet, through China, and eventually to Thailand.

In Thailand they mostly live in the more remote mountainous areas due west of Chiang Mai. They are subsistence farmers who live at peace with nature and the forests. The Karen settled in what is termed the 'middle level' in the mountains, namely between 800 and 1,800 meters.

They were semi-nomadic people using swidden (slash and burn) farming methods, moving around on a seven year cycle. However, around 1968 the Government insisted that they must stop moving around. They were offered Thai ID and land rights if they could prove longevity. Now they are settled but their lifestyle is still influenced by their culture
