Kuba knife from Congo

African ceremonial knife from the Kuba tribe, that may have been used as a currency. The handle is decorated with metal inlays and the copper blade with powdered gourds patterns.

A precious indigenious restoration in wood an rattan is a testimony of the attachment of its former owner.

Referenced in the catalog of the famous Hubert Goldet collection sale under the number 452. (S.V.V. Ricqles; 1st July, 2001). Previously in the André Schoeller collection, Paris.
