Vintage Indian Chapati Plate


A staple item in most northern Indian households, chapati plates like this were used to knead and stretch dough to make thin and crispy chapati bread. Families would also press dough against their intricate carvings to make decorative biscuits to be shared with loved ones or to celebrate important festivals and dates. Each carved plate is entirely unique and tells the tales of Indian families and the foods that they prepared and the celebrations that they shared together. Use this beautiful piece in your home in any way you choose, however we think it makes the perfect ornamental base for your scented candles.
