An excellent canoe prow from the Middle Sepik River region of Papua New Guinea, Early 20th century. It is 14" long and is carved from heavy hardwood in the form of a crocodile head, with the extensive scale-like decoration seen on many objects from the Yenchen/Korogo village area. It is nicely detailed, the eyes are inlaid cowry shells and the wood has a lovely darkened, aged and shiny patina. An exceptional example.

A Solomon Islands carved wood crescent shaped Samoan club. Appears (from our familiarity with Chinese furniture) to be ironwood. The incised decoration is partially filled with remaining encrustation. Good condition with minor surface wear (judging from which, a good patina has accumulated on this quite hard wood.) The flattened end of the grip, however, might possibly have at some point extended a bit longer (though there is patina to that surface as well.) Length, 25 1/8 inches (63.8 cm)
