I’m not certain what this was intended for… perhaps to hold bottles of wine? The shelves are slanted downwards towards the back, so they aren’t really conducive to displaying books. It apparently came out of a home with authentic masks and faces from Ghana (blog on those coming soon); it’s not known if this is also from any of the nations on the African continent.
In any event, it’s an interesting piece. Note: some individuals may consider it a bad stereotype or an inappropriate caricature which may be a Western perception of what art “should” be.
Condition: Very good. It was obviously intended to be a little rough or primitive but it has a few dings that may be wear and tear. And one of the figure’s feet seems to have some damage. Otherwise, it’s a pretty sturdy piece!
Dimensions: 33″H x 19″W x 18 1/2″D
Price: $65.00. (Plus the obligatory 5.5% State of Maine Sales Tax, of course.)
- Prices Are Firm. We do not negotiate on our prices… they’re set based on what the item cost us and our expenses in running the shop.
- Sales. We do occasionally have sales or reduce the prices on an item (usually if the item has been in the shop for at least 6 months with plenty of marketing). If so, that reduced price will be posted.
- Holding Items. Sorry, not without payment. We’ve been screwed on this more than once, and won’t do it any more.
- Questions. This is tough… I’d like to be responsive to everyone who has questions, but I work full time as a social worker, and full time at this shop hoping that someday it will make enough money so I can retire from that social work job. This means I have very limited time to respond to questions, especially if those questions have already been answered in this blog or on our various posts. So I may not have time to respond…

In memory of my beloved husband John K Snyder… 20 Sept 1956 – 21 Oct 2016.
He loved our shops, especially Heritage Books, Maps & Ephemera – it was his baby.
He loved me, and oh how I loved him.
