Important Leiden Medical Academy Engraved Dutch Wine Glass, Circa 1760. #g12 http://www.antiques.com/classified/1109138/Antique-IMPORTANT-LEIDEN-MEDICAL-ACADEMY-ENGRAVED-DUTCH-WINE-GLASS--CIRCA-1760---G12 This important circa 1760 dutch wine glass is beautifully engraved with the medical academy building and attached âhortus botanicusâ (plant study for medical students) at leiden university as it appeared during the mid 18th century. On each side are plants used in medical preparations. Along the top is engraved âsalus academiaeâ , latin for âsalute to the academyâ. this very fine glass might have been engraved in the workshop of the most important dutch engraver of the time, jacob sang. the style of engraving, the subject matter and the execution of the lettering along the rim all strongly suggest that the engraving could have been executed in the workshop of jacob sang or a close contempory. several unsigned engraved wine glasses of this period exist that are attributed, by these merits, to jacob sang. They now command prices in the $2,500.-$5,000. Range. If this piece had the tiny jacob sang signature on its foot rim it would command a price 10-20 times what we are asking here. this extremely rare and important 18th century wine glass will make a fine addition to any early wine glass collection or a wonderful gift for the physician or surgeon. No cracks or chips. Overall moderate crizzle to glass. 7â tall. thanks for looking! Please check out our other items!

Bete Gre Mask Africa Ivory Coast. #m115 http://www.antiques.com/classified/1109382/Antique-BETE-GRE-MASK-AFRICA-IVORY-COAST---M115 A nice example of a bete gre mask in very good condition, just minor losses and age cracks, see photo. No restorations or repairs. Unusual 'quiet" suttle expression. Decorated with metal tacks. Probably circa 1980. Approximately 13" tall. bete the côte d'ivoire is the home to the bete -- they live in the southwestern part of the country, between the akan ethnic groups to the east and the guro tribe to the north. They number about 600,000 and are an agricultural group. Patrilinear, the bete live â under the ancestorsâ authority â in small âheadlessâ villages. Historically they were hunters, but nowadays they also farm. They grow what is needed for a subsistence economy. They also have linked to the market economy and much of their effort is devoted to the cultivation of cacao and coffee. religion, omnipresent in bete life, aims to maintain a harmonious relationship between nature and the ancestors who are responsible for the welfare of the tribe. Today the vast majority still follow their traditional african religion, believing in a creator god lago, but do not pray to or worship him. Instead they seek help from many lesser spirits supposed to have supernatural power to help them, or give protection--spirits of their ancestors, spirits that inhabit trees, rivers, rocks, etc. They observe many customs and taboos and make sacrifices of eggs, chickens, cows, etc. Each ritual focuses on the maintenance and care of good relations with the world of ancestors, so as to assure the protection of the lineages. The religious cults give rise to numerous mask performances, during the course of which the music assumes fundamental importance. The apprenticeship of male youngsters particularly concentrates on the mastery of these arts. In fact, within a village context the men form into veritable dance societies, membership in which bete carvers are renowned for one particular type of face mask, the gre or nyabwa , which has exaggerated, grimacing distorted features â a large protruding mouth, facial protuberances, bulging forehead, elongated nose, with nostrils sometimes extending to each side of the face, and globular or bulging slit eyes set beneath a high-domed forehead carved with a medium ridge. In earlier days, this mask presided over the ceremony held when peace was restored after armed conflicts and it participated in sessions of customary justice. This type of mask was also worn to prepare men for war; the masks were used to envoke the "gre"; the forces of nature that were terror in its purest form. Nowadays, it is worn for a variety of ceremonies, including entertainment dances. thanks for looking! Please check out our other items!

Outstanding Dan, Ivory Coast, Africa, Bird Face Mask. #m117 http://www.antiques.com/classified/1109384/Antique-OUTSTANDING-DAN--Ivory-Coast--Africa--BIRD-FACE-MASK---M117 Here we have an outstanding dan bird / human mask, with a large protruding beak. It is carved from one piece of wood with long straw "hair" and braided fabric decoration, all topped off by a brass bell. Excellent overall, no restorations or repairs, probably 1970's - 1980's vintage. Mask approximately 10" tall, approximately 20" tall overall. dan (dan-gioh, gio, gioh, gyo, yacouba, yacuba, yakuba) côte dâivoire, liberia, guinea the 350,000 dan live mostly in the western part of the côte dâivoire and into liberia, where the land is forested in the south and bordered by a savannah in the north. They make their living from farming cocoa, coffee, rice and manioc. They also live off game and fish. The dan have the reputation of being fierce warriors, always battling their neighbors, the we, the guro, and the mano. From a cultural viewpoint the dan are close to the we populations situated in forest regions of the south, and against whom they have waged innumerable wars. Lacking a central authority, the various groups had neither a political institution nor unity. The village is under authority of a chief and a council of elders. In addition, there were male associations that attempted to bring about a socio-political unity, reinforcing rules of behavior, demanding absolute loyalty and obedience from members, and giving an initiatory education to the young. These societies called upon the tutelary spirits of the bush. The most powerful, even today, is the secret society of the leopard, the go, which, without having fully achieved its stabilizing and unifying goal, nevertheless grows from one year to the next. The leopard society acts as a major regulator of dan life and initiates young men during their isolated periods of three to four months in the forest. In order to attain adult status, all the boys and girls of the same age-group undergo an initiation that includes, in addition to specific teaching, circumcision for the former and clitoridectomy for the latter. To underline the transitional aspect of this trial, it takes place in the world of the bush â the realm inhabited by spirits who, like the ancestors, can play a mediating role between humans and supreme being zran. dan people have achieved notoriety for their entertainment festivals, which were village ceremonies, but are today performed largely for important visitors. During these festivals, masked performers dance on stilts. The go master, the head of the like-named society possesses the masks and guards them in a sacred hut. All dan masks are sacred; they do not represent spirits of the wilderness, they are these spirits. Dan masks are characterized by a concave face, a protruding mouth, high-domed forehead and are often covered in a rich brown patina. There are a variety of dan face masks, each of which has a different function. They may be the intermediaries, who acts between the village and the forest initiation camp, may act against bush fires during the dry season, used in pre-war ceremonies, for peace-making ceremonies, for entertainment. Over time, many among them have lost their original function and have been recycled into contexts related to entertainment, emerging only for festivals or events organized for visitors. Nonetheless, the great masks live on, their even more rare appearances being reserved for times of tension, when it is important they may exercise their role of social control and their faculty to reduce conflict or settle legal wrangles. The dan also carried small masks (less than 8â), which are sometimes called âpassportâ masks. They were sewn onto a piece of cloth and kept in a leather pouch and possibly worn in the small of the back. They are miniature copies of a family mask and sometimes received libations. These masks also act as witnesses during initiation ceremonies and protect the owner when he is away from home. Dan masks are the real treasures of african art tradition, ranging in their expressive powers from gentle tenderness to fierce aggression. the dan statues are not representation of ancestors or spirits. These figures, which were commissioned by powerful chiefs as three-dimensional portraits of their favorite spouses function as maternity figures with babies on their back. They are kept hidden inside houses and are only revealed during important occasions such as visits by foreign dignitaries. a woman who has distinguished herself through her hospitality and generosity will own a superb spoon of sculpted wood. This is a custom specific to the dan. This womanâs role, in the heart of the village, is to receive and feed travelers, musicians participating in celebrations, and men who have come to help clear the fields. The spoon possesses the power to make one rich and famous and confers a sure authority over the other women. The spoons have several shapes: the most usual one has a handle fashioned after a human head, comparable to certain masks; others have handles that form pairs of legs. the carvers also produce chiefs' staffs and female figures that seem to be prestige items, as are small figures cast in brass. thanks for looking!

Their major economic activity is producing palm oil and palm kernels for export. The culture of the grebo, a little-known ethnic group inhabiting the coastal region of eastern liberia and the bordering forestlands, was shaped in a considerable degree by their neighbors to the north, the kran and dan. Unlike the other people living in liberia, the grebo are not structured by the poro society. They are ruled by a chief known as bodio who lives in near total isolation and also assumed the function of grand priest. the grebo sculpt several types of masks. One type is characterized by a massive face surmounted by two buffalo horns. The second type of masks represents the female ideal with slit eyes and sweetness of expression. The third type are male war masks, more abstract and flat, formed by a board with elongated nose and one or more pairs of tubular eyes. The masks appeared during rituals reserved for initiates and at the time of festive occasions, when the whole population was able to see them. The war masks designed primarily to terrify appeared during battles, in the dances beforehand, and at the funerals of warriors. thanks for looking! please check out our other listings for more great items!

Wonderful Old We Wobe Mask Africa Ivory Coast. #m66 http://www.antiques.com/classified/1109437/Antique-WONDERFUL-OLD-WE-WOBE-MASK-AFRICA-IVORY-COAST---M66 A very beautiful african mask with gorgeous patina, braided textiles, small animal horns and brass bells. Probably circa 1960's. Ex collection bill powers, pa. Some losses from wear, use and age, see photos. No restorations or repairs. A certificate of provenance and authenticity from a new york gallery accompanies the mask. It states that the mask is early to mid 20th century. we (kran, gere, guere wobe, gwere, ngere wobo, wee) côte d'ivoire and liberia modern ethnology puts the wobe and guere together under the name we, despite the fact that the people themselves use the old names. The we population is estimated at 100,000. Rice, yams, taro, manioc, maize, and bananas are the primary crops grown. Farming and hunting have been largely replaced by laboring in the diamond camps or working at the rubber plantations. Confederations govern both ethnic groups -- the largest is the warrior confederation which is led by a military chief, who also acts as a civil authority. The family units also play an important role in we social life. the art of guere and wobe people is stylistically connected and both groups are often collectively referred to as we, meaning "men who easily forgive." like the dan, the we use a wide variety of masquerades, which hold important regulatory position within their small, egalitarian communities. Masks are owned by families and used by individual lineage members in contexts of social control, boyâs circumcision camps, and entertainment. Most we masks were created to frighten with the gaping jaws and tubular eyes. The style of these forest living people differ from the sophisticated, gentle and often refined art of the neighboring savanna-dwellers. We people produce a variety of masks often characterized by enlarged triangular nose, an open mouth and tubular eyes. We statues are rare. thanks for looking! Please check out our other items!

Late 18th Century Austrian Warzen Flask (wart Flask / Poison Bottle). #b789 http://www.antiques.com/classified/1109626/Antique-Late-18th-Century-Austrian-Warzen-Flask--wart-flask---poison-bottle----B789 Late 18th century austrian warzen flask (wart flask / poison bottle). #b789 here is a nice little whiskey or schnapps flask known in europe as a âwarzen flascheâ (wart flask). This one is made in a 2 piece (hinged) dip mold and has a slight pinch to both sides. In america these types are sometimes referred to as poison flasks because poisonous mixtures were sometimes kept in such bottles so they can be distinguished in the dark by feel (days of candle light). This one is blown by the german half-post method (2 gathers of glass for strength) with a slight base kick-up and pontil scar on its base. It is 5 3/8â tall. There is some very faint stain in the base and a tiny, very hard to see, flake at the edge of the lip, mentioned for accuracy, please see the close-up photo of the lip, otherwise perfect. A very nice example of this neat type of flask! thanks for looking! Please check out our other listings!

Important 1620 Dutch Ivory Hilted Falchion (sword Saber). # Sw51 http://www.antiques.com/classified/1109691/Antique-IMPORTANT-1620-DUTCH-IVORY-HILTED-FALCHION--SWORD-SABER-----SW51 A wonderful and impressive, large, pilgrim century sword with a solid carved ivory hilt composed of a finely figured eagle head pommel, full detailed lion back-strap and corinthian ferrule; the carved grip depicting a helmeted roman warrior on rearing horse while holding up a scepter. Most probably elephant ivory brought back on the east indies trade routes by the dutch voc (east india company). the bronze cross guard composed of long re-curved quillons with nicely detailed bird's head finials. The blade with two crude fullers to each side, both sides fully-engraved with an undulating worm (full length of blade) and a sun with face on the ricasso (engravings worn). Length of hilt about 5 1/2 inches, length overall about 35 1/2 inches. a very high quality arm that is extremely well balanced, extremely well executed (note the carving of the bird's tongue on pommel) and obviously made for a very important person. the hilt design is full of symbolism: the roman warrior on the grip representing the power of the former empire, the eagle representing germany, the lion representing the netherlands, with the lion sort of knowing on the eagle and holding it back. Symbolic of the netherlandsâ struggle to suppress the german expansion. the ivory hilt has a beautiful mellow yellow age patina with normal hairlines caused by normal aging as seen in photos. originally purchased from an up-state new york dealer many years ago where it reportedly came from an early dutch hudson valley homestead. Although there is no surviving documentation, its former owner claimed that the sword was handed down in his family for generations and had originally belonged to peter stuyvesant, early dutch governor of new netherland (new york) and this information was passed along with the sword. However, this is probably nothing but pure romantic folklore. Whatever the case; that fact is that this sword was probably brought over from the netherlands by an important early dutch colonist during the early 17th century settlement of new york (new netherland). john thompson of plymouth colony owned a sword of similar form, but of a considerably lesser quality (horn grip and iron guard).
