Mid 20th century - Reasonable condition

Very nice PYGMY hand bow with original tension (bamboo!) and stoppers on the ends. (no wood worm etc.)
The length is 103 cm. With its quiver in wild leather with stopper enabling to close it. Comes with a carrying strap.
There are 3 arrows in the quiver one of them has a split in the length. Dimensions: Length 63 cm Width approx. 6 cm.
Brought back by a miner from the Congo who worked for the Union Minière du Haut Katanga.
I have posted some pictures of him taken from his albums (not included). I can send them to you by mail.
I have posted a picture of a Pygmy with a bow in his hand standing next to a white person for illustration.
Registered shipment.

    dommage que la "poudre de bois rouge" fasse 1 poussière aussi "polluante" : 1 h de nettoyage n'a pas suffi !....

    Hallo, tribale items uit Afrika dienen niet schoon gemaakt te worden, dat gaat ten koste van de authenticiteit , zo worden ze tribaal vervaardigd en zo horen ze ook te zijn!vergelijk het met oude munten die mag je ook niet poetsen, ze worden dan meteen minder waard! Ik hoop dat u toch tevreden bent voor de rest,
    Met vriendelijke groet, Africanart
