Default Bow arrow quiver from Banda Neira, Moluccas

Hello dear members,

I have won recently a bow arrow quiver from Banda Neira by a German auction house. Of course I was jarred that the auction house stated that it is exactly from there so I contacted them and asked them from where they know this. They told me that the consignor stated this, he is the son from the collector. He stated that his father should have collected it before 1930.
The quiver is approx. 96 cm long and worked from rotan or similar material and was once covered complete with thin leather, the foot is covered with a brass sheet tube. Five arrows are still present.
The Banda islands are small Molucca islands once famous for their spicery, see here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Banda_Islands.
All comments are very welcome!
