Hand-Carved Zanzibari Turtle Serving Set


4 in stock

This elegant two-tone serving set pays homage to the Zanzibari turtle.


The gentle green turtles, or ‘ngamba’, that populate Zanzibar’s crystal-clear waters are critically endangered. Their numbers are rapidly dwindling, hunted for their meat and for their distinctive patterned shells.

Zanzibari artisans have hand-carved this distinctive two-tone fork and spoon set out of mahogany, with a small ngamba at the top of each piece. Slender and elegant, this fork and spoon set offers an eye-catching way to serve up dinner to your guests – and to pay tribute to the beautiful turtles of Zanzibar.

*Please note that the color and shape may vary slightly from piece to piece as they are hand-made.


Tenedor y cuchara de caoba y ébano

Este elegante juego de mesa en dos tonos rinde homenaje a la tortuga zanzibariana.

Las nobles tortugas verdes, o ‘ngamba’, que habitan las aguas cristalinas de Zanzíbar están en grave riesgo de extinción. Su número decrece rápidamente, cazadas por su carne y por sus distintivos caparazones estampadas. Artistas zanzibarianos han tallado a mano este juego de tenedor y cuchara en dos tonos a partir de la caoba, con una pequeña ngamba en el extremo superior de cada pieza. Esbelto y elegante, este juego de cuchara y tenedor ofrece una atractiva forma de servir la comida a tus invitados – y de rendir tributo a las bellas tortugas de Zanzíbar.

* Tenga en cuenta que el color y la forma pueden variar de una pieza a otra ya que están hechos a mano.
