Antique African Ivory Coast Carved Door, in a wonderful deep rich patina and color. The door has peg or pin-style hinges on one side and has a wonderful deep rich patina color. Often used as doors to inner rooms, they do not show the wear of exposure to the elements.

This will be a great addition to your African art collection and can be hung on a wall as a great ethnic art piece, and the interior doors share the careful execution usually characteristic of other Baule sculpture. Unlike most of the Baule masks and figures, however, the doors were not secretive and were always on view. The elegant low reliefs depict figures, heads, crocodiles, birds, objects and abstract patterns. Made in the 1st half of the 20th century.

 Provenance: The Hamill Gallery of Tribal Art. Roxbury, Mass.
