Antique Wooden Moroccan Platters
These wooden vessels date from the 1880s to the 1930s. They have been used for the day-to-day preparation and serving of food. Most of the larger vessels shown were intended for the serving of couscous, a popular Moroccan dish. Couscous is made from granulated wheat, often coloured bright yellow with saffron or turmeric, and is served piled high with spiced vegetables and slow-cooked meat. The platters reflect the common cultural attitude towards the sharing of food.
