Early to mid 20th century - Good condition

A finely decorated Baule Pulley with lovely scarification and signs of use.

16 cm in height (18 cm incl. base)

Provenance: Collection Robert van der Heijden, the Netherlands.
Age: Early to mid 20th.

This pulley, decorated with a handsome Baile Mblo mask, was part of a weaving loom. These pulleys served no real purpose aside from bringing joy to the waving women with their beauty. They are related to Baule culture. The pulley is moved by the cord that passes through the pulley and moves the heddles.
Clear signs of wear on the inside of the pulley, as depicted.

Sold with written description of the tribe and private review by David Norden.

May be viewed or picked up in David Norden's Buy African Antiques Shop in Antwerp, by appointment.

Free shipping. Sent by registered and insured mail up to €500 with Track & Trace (higher insurance value on request).

Please note: seller guarantees this item's authenticity.

  • Reclamar a Catawiki a la menor incidencia. La figura llegó mal embalada y rota!. He tenido que devolverla al vendedor y este "señor" no ha querido reembolsarme los gastos. Mal profesional.
