An Interesting Carved African Hardwood Hanging Panel

Status: This item has been sold
Sold by: Robert Belcher Antiques

This antique has been viewed 22 times in the past month with the most views from Germany.


This unusual and decorative piece originates from Africa and dates to circa 1920. It is hand carved in an intricate and delicate style which is not often seen in African art .It is produced from a single solid panel of rich dark hardwood. It has a bowed profile and is pierced and carved with numerous African animals and figures which are displayed in eight tiers. These figures are all shown in different positions. This decorative piece would have probably been brought back from a big game hunting trip as a memento. The stand is of a similar date and would have been specially made for displaying this piece. It is of European manufacture, most likely English. The base of the stand is carved in mahogany and the pole and hook are made from brass. The panel hangs from a single hole at the top. Together they form an unusual and eye catching object.
