PROVENANCE : Colonial family acquired this at the end of the 1950's. From a retired Belgian collector who had more than 70 Art objects mentioned in the Guy van Rijn Yale database of African art.

This is a unique occasion for you to get a genuine object in your house at very low starting prices.

The name of the collector will be given to all buyers in the accompanying documentation included in every package.
