20th century - Good condition

This ritual wooden marriage cup from the Congolese SUKU tribe is a magnificent, rare and old tribal object! Beautifully designed doubled cup from which the wedding couple drinks during the wedding ceremony, to confirm their marriage. Rituals were performed to protect the couple against things that could harm their harmony. Splendid hard wood, with a warm mid-brown tint, it is gracefully shaped. With some visible light traces of wear and age, but the overall of this exceptional object remains in good condition.

Height: 11 cm.
Length: 17 cm.
Weight: 150 grams circa.
Origin: D.R Congo.
Provenance: from a private Italian collection.
