Happy offerding. Please see my other rare listing of artefacts I am selling as well.

Collected in the 1960's by a manager of a large multi-national firm who spent 25 years living and working in PNG in the East New Britain area around Kokopo, this is a beautiful vintage carved Massim wooden bowl from the Trobriand Islands of New Guinea. This is a beautiful Massim bowl which has very good remains of natural pigments, striking imagery and etchings and a dark patina. This bowl is an old artefact with estimated age of the piece between 1950’s to 1960’s. This piece is part of a wonderful collection amassed by this individual (who wishes to remain anonymous) and her husband over a 25 year period and brought back to Australia in the early 90's. Over 600 pieces in total.

L – 40 cm

W – 15 cm

D – 5 cm

Pre-postage weight - 0.6kg

** Postage rates vary from state to state so please place your postal code into the rates table to see Australia post charges to your area. Where possible I am happy to combine postage if I can make it cheaper for you. This is not always possible given the sizes and unique packing requirements for each unique piece. Can also insure package if required.**
