Very good condition, copper, 18 cm

Antique and very exclusive copper figure of a tiger from BENIN, Africa. Made by the FON people, first half of the 20th century. This is a very old and precious figurine.

This figurine has been made in the tradition of the “ cire perdue” , lost wax method, for the making of bronze objects.

Copper sculptures like this one are only rarely offered for sale.

Dimensions:
18 cm x 6 cm x 5 cm (approximately 400 grams)

An asset for any collector or as a decoration of your interior.

The whole is nicely finished off. It is in a good original condition and it has a wonderful patina. The pictures are an addition to the description of the condition.

This figurine will be well packaged and shipped with track-and-trace.

Note: All items are (slightly) used and no longer for regular use. That is why they can have lighter or slightly heavier traces of use or wear. However, everything can be seen in the photos that accompany the item. So consider this carefully because they are part of the description.

    Envíado por DHL. No hicieron la entrega en domicilio, tuve que ir yo a recogerlo. El paquete relleno de botellas de plástico húmedas. Vergonzoso.
