The Konda of central D.R.Congo made ornate and eccentrically shaped sword blades for non-combative use. They were indications of their owner's social rank, created simply for prestigious qualities. This excellent example is made from copper and has a wooden handle with iron strapping to further accentuate its pinched form. Late 19th century. Very fine condition with aged patina. Provenance: Old Dutch collection since the 1950's
