Original Naga GrinderGH-06
RRP incl. GST | Trade price excl. GST
This incredible coffee table is an original grain pounder from Nagaland in remote India.
This table was initially used by the Naga tribes of North East India as a grinding table for spices or grains found in communal areas within the villages. The holes within the centre are where the grains would be held and ground with wooden poles.
These beautiful original pieces are hand-carved from a single, solid piece of wood in the early 20th century. After many years of use, grain pounders wear through and are no longer suitable for their designed use. We sourced a selected number of decommissioned pieces, then restored and painted them.
All grinders are individual in size; smaller pounders could be found outside the wealthy villager's huts. Longer pounders with multiple holes were located in more communal areas of villages accessible for the communities.
Our Original Naga Grinder is more than a stunning coffee table; they are unique art pieces with an incredible history and story of use.

Original, reclaimed hardwood grain pounder from Nagaland, India.
The wood's reclaimed nature is perfectly complemented by the high gloss white finish, achieved by several specialist paint coats.
The surface of the Naga Grinder is not entirely flat; all tables are individually unique, with a rustic, earthy texture.
*Please note, dimensions are a guide only and vary. These are original pieces and are perfectly imperfect; variations are not seen as a fault but rather an inherent part of the beauty.

Every Uniqwa piece has a story…
Our collections are mostly individually hand-made pieces. As most of our products are made from natural materials, elements such as texture, colour, and pattern may vary piece to piece.
Reclaimed timbers, naturally weathered materials and off-cuts otherwise discarded are frequently part of Uniqwa design features. Over time, natural splitting, cracking, and loss of natural oils may occur and form part of the characteristics and beauty of Uniqwa products. These are not viewed as imperfections or faults, rather part of the natural life and beauty of timber.
We believe the use of natural materials and hand-crafted elements result is a testament to the unique qualities found in materials originating from nature.
