#E784
AFRICA, NIGERIA.
Tribal Group: BENIN.


Bronze, female head, in the manner
of tribal queen busts.
Precise age uncertain
probably ca. late 20th century.
Approx. 12" tall

Caster Unknown but work is typical
of Ashanti bronze casting in Ghana,
which was the source of this object
,

If this was a certified, early original,
it would be in a museum somewhere
and have a valuation 10x greater.
As a native copy, properly cast in Africa
for the collector market, it is an interesting
decorative historic reference, fairly
valued at this low price
US$600
