Quite a few of the larger ones that I have seen seem to be exaggerated in their features (bulky with harsh angles) while this one stays true to form. If we ever get a day with decent lighting I will post a photo or two of my very limited collection of gunongs to add to this thread. Thank you for sharing these with us.
thank you and yes, one is still by Jose. And you are correct, the "new" one is surely worked for use and I would place it around 1930. It's a real fighter.
Curious to see your collection of gunongs.
