The coconut would have been cut or hacked open, milk and meat would be preserved/consumed, and then the shell carefully cleaned and shaved to create a smooth goblet shape. The top section taken off would be rounded into a stem to give the full royal effect of a goblet. Size of largest 5" W x 2 3/4" H

Condition: One bowl missing stem portion, old losses to edges of two.
