Ever wonder what high Himalayan yak herders use when they are milking their dri (female yak)?

No?! Well in any case, its time to give it some thought, and as you probably guessed by now this item illustrates the answer. It is a classic antique milking pot, carved in the desirable style typical of the best of the old Himalayan milking pails. It may come as a surprise to some that there is an identifiable genre in utilitarian art work here, but indeed there is. This is an exemplary old milking jug with the curvilinear and geometric carving over the surface of the pot and handle that are typical of the more ornate milking jugs. There is also lovely patination on the handle from years of use.
