All of our collections are one-of-a-kind, handcrafted, authentic
African art but its true age may be difficult to establish. There are no
perfect methods to date a piece and establish it’s exact origin. We
rely on our supplier network to supply as much info on any
particular piece as possible. Possible minor imperfections, wear and tear, including scuffing,
cracking and minimal chipping might be present. Kindly use the
magnifying function when viewing the piece.
