Fine example of a carved wood figure, tribal, from New Guinea - undated but likely late 19th century to early 20th. This form of traditional wood carving is typical of the villagers living along the Sepik, some examples very large... This one table top size, almost 12" high, 3.25" wide, 2.5" deep on a and it has been mounted on a 2" square plinth. I kept the rec't so I know!
(and can supply a copy of it with the sale). Informational details about the collection in general: My father was a well-known numismatist, who had professional interest in ancient coins as well as personal interest in antiquities and unusual currency. He was the primary source for many of my acquisitions, in addition to auctions and other dealers. I began my collecting in this field in the 1950s when I was a teenager, and while I haven't added to it in over 25 years, I've enjoyed displaying these pieces for years.Now it's time for the next "steward" - who can care for these objects with the same affection. If you prefer faster service, contact me for add'l costs.
