This sculptural early 20th century coconut splitter was carved into the form of a crouching beast ready to pounce. It was likely a merchant's tool in a South East Asian market used to split coconuts which were then ground into fine snow-like flakes for use in dumplings, sauces and sweetmeats.

“Over the years, I’ve incorporated many pieces from PAGODA RED into my designs. Not only can they balance new furnishings (and often new construction) by feeling more established, but the pieces emanate a sense of rich history, often leaving you wondering where they were in a previous life. These beautiful pieces carefully hand-selected by the team at PAGODA RED, coupled with their unbelievable customer service, make them a must-have for any home.”
