A shield from Sulawesi .

The wooden shield is in a near perfect condition with bicolor hair and nice rattan strips along the edges. The inlay is very rare and interesting as it is a mixture of bone china with old imported dutch

" Petrus Ragout & Co ceramic".

Pottery of this company was imported to the Dutch Indies on large scale in the 19th century.

A very good made shield with lots of nice details.

No restores so a few triangles are missing.

Size: 104  cm.
