I’m not 100% sure what these items are, but I think they are decorative tagines, which are Moroccan serving dishes. The ones I have seen previous are not nearly as tall and elaborate as these and have been made of glazed ceramic. They are used for cooking as well as serving, but many that I have seen are just used for serving. The cone shaped top is easily lifted off and allows steam to circulate inside the cone part causing an effect like an oven. Tangines keep the food warm, moist and full of flavor. These were for sale in a shop on display in a fancy hotel on Jeddah’s Corniche which is situated along the Red Sea. I have seen them in many Saudi homes.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO MY BROTHER GARY!
About This Blog, and About Me: Susie of Arabia
Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, is KSA's 2nd largest city and is located on its west coast, right on the Red Sea. I moved here in 2007 with my Saudi hubby. This journal reflects the things that I see here, life through my eyes, my lens.
Please be sure to also visit my other blog, SUSIE OF ARABIA (formerly SUSIE'S BIG ADVENTURE), which relates my experiences, thoughts, and observations about living in Saudi Arabia.
