End XXTh- Early XXth- Before 1933 - Good condition. Provenance Gaetan Schoonbroodt.

An Ebony Makonde stopper- Mozambique

All our exclusive Art may be viewed or picked up in David Norden's Buy African Antiques Shop in Antwerp, by appointment.

Stopper Makonde, Mozambique end 19th Century, early XXth. Previous Collection: Gaetan Schoonbroodt, Verviers. With its arch-typical Makonde face this stopper was carved by a master. The scarification on the face have deeper meaning than just decoration they are clan related. What makes this example special is the asymmetrical coiffure on top of the head. This is rare and most of all exhibits the inventiveness of the carver. The geometric patterns on the base is well done. An early collected example; in excellent condition.

Please note: Sold with written description of the tribe and private review by David Norden who guarantees this product's authenticity.

Free shipping. Sent by registered and insured mail, or pick it up in Antwerp.
