Dear Friends, Collectors, and African Art Enthusiasts,
It is our pleasure to present our final sale of 2016, with an outstanding selection of top quality antique African art. Nearly all of these objects have been vetted as authentic and antique by the most rigorous committees of recognized tribal art experts at shows such as Parcours des mondes (Paris), BRUNEAF (Brussels), BRAFA (Brussels), and the San Francisco Tribal Art Show. In addition, this sale features a number of objects recently exhibited at Parcours in September and a selection of Kpellie masks from our exhibition and accompanying published catalogue, “The Beautiful Lady, 21 Masks of the Senufo Tribe of Cote de Ivoire”
As always, we provide a dossier with each piece which provides background, history, provenance, comparables, and a certificate of authenticity. In most cases, the package with each piece includes certificates of authenticity from former owners or dealers, letters of provenance, original laboratory tests where applicable (for terracotta and carbon tested wood), and other accompanying documentation.
For domestic purchases in the continental US, we are including free shipping. For purchases outside the US, as our regular clients are aware, we received a heavily reduced shipping rate with Fedex. We want you to be 100% thrilled with your purchase and be able to acquire something important and special at the lowest price possible.
And of course, it is not to early to buy something special for yourself or someone you love for the holidays! If you have any questions, you can email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone at (415) 362-6601.
