Early XXth- good condition

African Tetela Region Kusu Tribe (Congo) Dagger
Iron, red cupper, wire.
H=58 cm.

With a large, broad leaf-shaped double-edged blade with complex shallow fullers and a narrow ricasso measures 58 cm in length, making it one of the bigger of this type. The hilt has been clad with copper sheet, itself overlain by a spiral wrapped iron strip. Lew had attributed this as late 19th century Konda, however, in referring to Fischer & Zirngibl's Afrikanische Waffen (1978), the similarity to Kusu examples is striking (especially fig. 221). Overall length is 23 inches (53 cm.)

PROVENANCE : 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 …
