While on holiday last week we visited an antique street market in Barcelona just off Las Ramblas and found this carved gourd.
Our research shows that it is a gourd with seeds inside and was probably carved around 1900.
The finely carved panels show lots of scenes of early village and farm life.....see pics.
A most unusual piece of early Folk Art in excellent condition and measuring 10cms tall by 9 wide.
