Old Kudus Java Tobacco Cutting Stool Hand Carved Teak Wood Crocodile
Old Indonesian Tobacco Cutting bench. Very rare & hard to find item. Reminiscent of a cobblers bench. Whimsically carved on both front and back from teak wood in the shape of a crocodile.
This unique folk art tool from Kudus Java would make a great addition to your
Tobacciana collection or your collection of Indonesian art.
Used to chop tobacco in preparation for the making of "Kretek" or Clove Cigarettes. This would be interesting as a small side table.
- I have included a video so you can see how this bench was used.
- approx. size:
- Overall size - 34" long x 19" at the widest point x 26" tall
- seat - 29" x 10"
- Very heavy teak in original condition
