The oldest piece we have by far.
Possibly used to "tap" or "declutter" cotton of its seeds and turn it into soft, weavable fibers. This piece is likely from Africa as it was attained by a well provenanced African dealer and collector. The beautiful "female" form makes this piece ideal for the collector of ethnic or tribal arts.
Dimensions: 9" high by 3" wide by 3" deep
Includes custom-made stand
Provenance: Ex Private Collection. Collected about 50 years ago by a Belgian living in the D.R. Congo.
