Native Stilt House

I picked up this curious little Asian stilt house today from a vintage shop. It is presumably a tourist souvenir from someone’s travels.

With the roof off, figures can be placed inside which extends its use with gaming figures.

The roof could be reversed but it does look rather odd.

A lucky find – not sure where in the world or which part of Asia it is from.

  1. An excellent find and addition to your scenery. It will no doubt give good service to you and your games. It is fortunate that the roof comes off allowing it to be fully occupied. I look forward to seeing it in a game.

    1. The roof was not designed to come off but with a little controlled gentle strategic forcing and a stout knife, it now does. With some superglue the roof is now back in one piece. Inside was very dusty.
