20th century pieces of carved wood and fiber, with shells affixed to elongated portions at the front (utilized for the actual scraping of the flesh of the coconuts). Pieces are almost the same dimensions with top seat and grater portions measuring approximately 31" in length and their overall height being 19" and 8" wide. In overall fine condition except for some cracks and chips and, most notably, the shell on one of the pieces is shattered so that only two fragments remain lashed to their respective stool. From the collection of a world traveler of 45+ years who has circumnavigated the globe via sailboat. Keywords: South Pacific, tribal, furniture, bench
