Price: $0.00

Dimensions: 12" high by 5.5" wide by 5.5" deep
The Kuba Vessel is from the Warwick Family Collection here in San Diego, California. Warwick's is the country's oldest family-owned bookstore, in business for 118 years, since 1896.
This Figural Kuba Vessel/Container is from the Democratic Republic of Congo circa 1920. It was formerly in the collection of the Western Reserve Historical Society in Cleveland, Ohio. There, it was accessioned in 1943, and still carries two accession numbers written in red on the front and back of the piece.
Its striking face, multi-colored pigments, and two carved horns make this anthropomorphic/zoomorphic vessel unique in every way.
