STONE-CARVED NEW CALEDONIAN DOME-HEADED PHALLIC CLUB IN PRISTINE CONDITION
Period/Date: Late 18th-Early 19th century
Materials: Hardwood, sennit, trade cloth, lime
Description: This particular club is the FINEST quality example of its type we've ever owned! It is virtually in pristine condition which is extremely rare since the thin outer rim is usually highly damaged or restored. This one is neither. In fact its head has beautiful form and symmetry. The incised decoration is deeply carved with non-metal tools and retains much of its original lime infill. Its original handgrip of cloth and fine sennit binding is present and complete as well. It has some minor hairline age cracks along its shaft and some very old paint speckling around its head. Presented on a custom bronze display stand.
Dimensions: Length 31" (79 cm), Width 5" (12.5 cm)
Price: $3800 Currency Conversion A custom stand may be ordered for an additional fee
