A pait of lawn tennis posts - the 'Colonial'. We have been unable to find out anything about their maker or their date but an educated guess would place them around the 1920s or possibly '30s. By their name they must surely be British but more we do not know. All cast iron work is good and undamaged and the bronze winch and other fittings are likewise complete and operational. The ash post have some historic woodworm but are still robust and quite fit for use or display.

Pair of Country Chairs
An antelope mask from the Bobo people of southern Burkina Faso. Traditionally masks of this type are realistic representations of sacred animals. The face is mostly dark wood but with a white semi-circle carved into each cheek and deftly incised carving around the eyes along with a broad arrow shape running from forehead to nose - all filled with kaolin or similar white pigment and given a brown overwash. The rectangular-shaped ears are nicely carved and the inner ear is finished in white. The dark curved horns are also well formed and incised for three quarters of their length, these and the tips decorated once again with kaolin. This well carved mask is not of any great age but was made in the traditional way by the families who pass their craft down from one generation to the next as they are still used in Burkina Faso's biennial Festima. Measuring a little over 22 inches high he would make a handsome, more ethical, and dare we say it far more decorative, alternative to the currently fashionable taxidermied game heads as wall adornment. The price of £130 includes insured postage to a UK address.

What an attractive and useful thing this is - equally at home in the house or garden. The brass tray is about 27 inches in diameter and the whole stands about 21 inches high and is suitable for either permanent location as a coffee or display table, or for occasional use due to the benefit of the folding leg stand. The tray has gorgeous engraved design work displaying great intricacy and features lions, birds and sari clad ladies. The wooden folding base is carved all over and has a small mother of pearl and ebony highlight to each of its six legs, as well as bobbin work to the out-riggers. NB one tiny ornamental turning is missing from the base of the central pole.

Barograph by Maxant of Paris. Working order and complete with spare graph papers. The original lacquer on its mahogany case is somewhat bloomed and there is superficial external oxidisation to to the lower of its four aneroid capsules but we have left this 'patination' as is: thus allowing this instrument to be offered at an attractive price and giving its new owner the choice of 'improving' or not.
