Antique African Camel Rack / Safari Table

Carved upright carved shaped like cricket bats and lashed onto crossed elements at either end serve as legs on this rack, which could be placed on the camel to load him up even more. Then, at safari's destination, the rig was placed in the tent, a top placed on top, to become a service table. Very practical! (For everyone but the poor camel...) Madagascar, circa 1900. Ex coll.: James Willis Tribal Art, San Francisco, CA. Top approximmately 37 inches by 67 inches, 35-1/2 high.
