This is the 37th page with six singly priced items from the MAB estate collection (MAB 340 to 342, 346, 349 and 355). This group includes the following bronze pieces: a 300 year old mythical animal figurine; a strange looking character riding what appears to be a rabbit; two bare-breasted females statues, one with a jar on her head, the other with her arms stretched over her head to touch her fingertips together; a small seated thoughtful male with his hand resting on his knee; and a large and impressive hollow bronze head with a long pony-tail braid. Prices in this group range from $125 to $600, and grades, on a basis of 1-10, range from 6 to 8. Comments from Eric Makin, an African art dealer in Hamburg, Germany, are noted in each photo whenever Makin generously helped by adding information about the African pieces. When age, culture, area of origin, and country were available in the estate records, they are included, or otherwise noted that none were available. Each photo lists first the item inventory number in brackets, a brief description of the item, approximate date, provenance, size, material made from, condition with a subjective grade (10 being the highest) noted by this writer, and finally the price. Each item comes with a small display card and a biographical sketch about the late owner. Select or ask any question by referring either to the Trocadero ITEM # or the STOCK # at the top of this page, and ALSO to the item’s INVENTORY NUMBER (i.e., the MAB #) as shown in the brackets on its photo. NOTE: if you would like to view a large number of our various listings and at the same time limit the browsing time, try our ‘TWELVE different items on a single page format’ by simply spelling out the word TWELVE in the search box. That will quickly bring up all of our listings that have a number of different items on a page, each individually priced! And if you want to further refine the group, add one or two additional modifiers at the same time such as ‘Indian, Precolumbian, Stone, Pot, Gold, etc.’ Any item that has been sold will be so noted on its photograph.
