This is fabulous woven African shield dates to the late 19th century / early 20th century.

It is made of wood and covered all over with fine woven cane - which forms a subtle decorative pattern.

The shield is trimmed around the edges with animal skin and fur (probably goat skin).

In the center is a raised wooden cone or nipple.

The handle is on the reverse and is made of woven cane - it is secure and firmly attached to the shield.

Generally, a beautiful example and in excellent damage free condition.

The shields are typical to the Ganda people of the Lake Victoria region, Buganda Kingdom, Central Region, Uganda

Dimensions: length is 20 1/2 inches (52 cm) and the width at the widest point is 9 1/4 inches (23 cm)

These antique shields are now hard to source and my asking price for this fine example is certainly a fair one.

Please see my other large Kenyan shield which is also for sale in my Iconic Edinburgh online store -

Lots more photographs available on request.
