PRESTIGE BLADE

Baule, Ivory Coast

Fine Prestige Blade. Baule Culture, Ivory Coast

 

Baule prestige blades are renowned for their balanced, harmonious design, expert forging and lavish decoration. This elegantly shaped forged iron blade, sheathed in a sewn animal hide scabbard decorated with coral-coloured spondylus shells, would have reflected the prestige and status of its bearer. Antique brass tacks decorate the blade’s finely carved wooden handle.

 

Ex Private Collection, Europe

Estimated Period: Early 20th Century
