Interesting for sure

Chokwe

Chokwe

Q: I have an interesting and rare African mask that I would like to sell.  I do not have experience in these matters and I would not like to be under-compensated for the piece.  Theo, 532

A: Your Chokwe mask is attractive to tourists and collectors, but does not have much resale value. In books and museums there are carefully carved examples that have not been artificially aged. Check them out. They are very beautiful… but not what most of us can afford.  B-
