This is a fine mid-20th century bronze figurine of a warrior from a spear.

It is finely modelled and has a lovely rich patina commensurate with its age.

It was certainly not "made yesterday" and it is a fine piece.

It comes from the Benin area of Nigeria in Africa - where similar metal figures that been made for centuries.

This one is a nice size for domestic display - and measures 11 3/4 inches in height.

Heavy piece - as you might a piece made of solid bronze. It has an unpacked weight of 1.9 kg.

It is in good vintage condition - it might have stood once on a more substantial base - but it would be easy to pop a new base on this fine fellow for display. He does stand upright on his own as is - but has a wee bit of a wobble factor.

Have taken a number of photographs for your inspection - more can be sent for serious interest,

Sadly, I would be unable to post internationally.
