Armband New Guinea Papua

“Papua New Guinea : “shell Bangle””

Probably mid-twentieth.

About 10 X 11 X 5cm.

I continue to get out of the boxes and cases acquired in the succession of our Pau scholar whose insatiable cosmopolitan curiosity continues to reveal surprises and many questions: some of the objects carried a label indicating the origin, which, to Internet time, we put them within a few clicks, here, it was not the case, but the object is so characteristic that it was easy to trace its origin thanks to the online collections of the Quai Branly-Jacques Chirac Museum which houses a cuff of a similar model from Papua New Guinea, Sepik region.
It is therefore a bracelet made of an interlacing of harmoniously braided fibers on which are fixed discs cut in the top of nicely polished cone shells.
Do not hesitate to ask us for photos or additional information by email or phone.
