    Herkomst van de vaas is zonder twijfel Mangbetu, een grote aanwinst voor mijn collectie.
    Goed verpakt en snel verzonden.

    De vaas is basis bruin, met enkele grijs getinte plaatsen. Afhankelijk van uw computer scherm kan dit een blauwe schijn geven. Bij mij weten bestaan er geen blauwe Mangbetu vazen. Ik heb het aan 2 vrouwelijke familie leden gevraagd want ik persoonlijk ben kleurenblind. Bedankt voor uw informatie en uw aankoop, hopelijk u terug te zien. Nog een fijne dag.
