Early to middle 20th century, reasonable condition

An Akan terracotta head, with open mouth, a sortened, flat nose, framed by coffee bean eyes with a domed, decorated forehead; this head was could be a part of a sculpture.. Unfortunately, no precise thermoluminescent dating is available for the present terracotta head. However, its style and external appearance definitely indicate its ‘old’ age (18th/19th)
