CA 1910 - Good condition

A special knife of the Mangbetu, also called trumbash, the handle is carved out of ivory with a heavy forged iron blade.
These type of knives mostly had a wooden handle and are less frequently found with an ivory handle.
The handle has a nice tribal patina.
Beautiful patina.
Total size 37.5 cm
Width 20.5 cm
Length of the handle 13.5 cm
Good condition with normal age cracks in the ivory handle


There is an extensive chapter about these types of knives in the book "white gold black hands vol 8" from which I show some pictures.

The seller guarantees that this item is made of antique ivory, crafted before 1947 and thus permitted under CITES regulations. This item comes with a certificate of the certified appraisal office Ruyten, by expert Jan Willem Ruyten.
This object will be sent via registered mail and sent only within Europe.
For shipping outside Europe special permits must be requested for this lot that in all likelihood will not be awarded.

No shipping outside Europe.
