Gholna

Basketery!

Again from my grandpa’s collection which now is antique for me. This is called “gholna” in Marathi. The word “gholna" signifies its movement in a circular form when it is being used. It is basically a sieve to clean grains and cereals like wheat, rice, barley etc. It is used to do the first stage cleaning i.e. separating the grain from the husk.


Isn't this a good wall piece for today's modern kitchen! I just love it!
