Good condition

I propose you a colonial knife in ivory and silver which comes from Africa (Belgian Congo).
An unique piece certainly made for a fortunate settler of the time.
The blade is made of silver (tested 950/1000) engraved with a trophee of African weapons, amongst which lances and a hunting horn.
The ivory handle is carved with a slavery scene.

length 32 cm
weight 223 grams
