Quirky bamboo rice cutter from Southern Laos, most likely this is from one of the ethnic minorities up in the hills. 50 years old is a ballpark guess on the age, an unusual item and the only one I have seen. Nice patina- the blade is rusted but no damage and the handle has some bug holes and is fairly delicate. H: 43cm/17in and W: 31cm/12.7in.
Rare net repairing tool from the Vietnamese Nùng ethnic minority, who are closely related to the Zhuang people in Southwest China. This is carved from buffalo horn and still has a length of handspun plant fiber cord. This difficult to date as I can find no references on this particular item, suffice to say it predates the use of cheaper and easier to obtain plastic versions, so a conservative dating of about 40 years will do. Perfect condition and L: 19cm/7.5in.
