African Handcarved Wooden Tribal Bust

Striking and very characterful wooden bust of an African tribesperson. I'm guessing it's a woman from the facial characteristics although there are no other obvious clues, and to be fair it could quite easily be a man! She has her eyes closed and is wearing a heart shaped necklace. I doubt if it is of any great antiquity, the patina could be applied rather than earned but nevertheless it's a very nice piece, highly attractive and well executed. No damage as far as I can see - the cracks are natural and there don't appear to be any dents or knocks.

Measurements (approx)
30cm x 10cm x 12cm

Small Decorative Earthenware Dish with Bird Design

Very nice rustic small earthenware dish in a rough blue glaze with a design of raised brown circles and white dots around the edge and a lovely wading bird in yellow in the centre. It was designed to hang but the surface of the base where the hole was driven through has snapped through (was made too thin). It's not severe and doesn't affect the look of the piece at all, it just means it wobbles slightly when you put it down flat. Still a strikingly lovely little dish.

12.5cm diameter x 2cm.

Weight with packaging: 400g.
