Well. fancy meeting you here!
I know that club!
It has been doing me the favor of keeping the dust off the wall for a decade or so.
Now that he's going back into the flow, I took another look. Love the scarification. Tribal appropriate design, I'd guess, of the Makonde in Tanzania.
I think that you will be happy with it.
All packaged and going out Mon!
Thanx
enjoy
peace

Hi Lew,

unfortunatly this is a product for the tourists. The club has all the same patina and the head is rudimentary. See exemples of a staff top and a fly whisk from the Makonde.

Yours, Carlo

It's still an interesting piece and quite heavy.

Hi lew,

you didn't pay to much for your club, and most imported: you're enjoying it !!
Just wanted to tell you that the club isn't so old as you would think it is...

I figure it's probably 1950s-60s . It's certainly not new the patina is not artificially applied.
