The form of this large and impressive Swazi headrest consists of an upper section supported by two flared legs, fluted with vertical grooves. A central lug features on the underside of the headrest. Slight chips to the surface are present on the other leg, as shown in the images. Over time, the surface of the upper support has developed a lovely golden patina.
Estimated Period: First Half of 20th Century
Condition Report: One of the supports has been restored. Appears to be a traditional restoration.
