All Items : Popular Collectibles : Cultural : Pre 1990 item #1420839 (stock #JB03340)
Interesting painted bark piece from the Pacific islands, probably Tonga, Fiji Samoa, or other island in Oceania, 18 3/4" by 26 1/2" (21 1/2" by 32" framed).

Note the old San Francisco pre-zip code framer's label. This item would make for a fine addition to your tropical or "Hawaiiana" style interior...

This red and green ‘mokubei’ style Kutani ware sake set is a fine representation of the originals produced by the craftsmen from the Kasugayama kiln.

The set is in excellent condition despite its age and has intentional flaws to the free hand...

Figural form illustrating a proverb. A tubular element with a tiny human head each end is folded on itself and bound in the middle with a band accented with a tiny silver inlay. A variation on a common theme with these emphasizing that while we all have individual wants and needs, we have a common element in our humanism (sometimes characterized as a common stomach). Unusually complex and intricate for these. From the Sir Cecil Armitage Collection.

This is a heavy-for-its size (about six pounds) sculpture in a heavy, dark wood like mahogany (ironwood?), measuring about 10" high by about 5" on a side.

I have googled the term and it seems to be applied to a figure who was in Zambia in the late 19th century to as late as 1928, when there was some murder there. I don'...
