  1. Hello all, I am joining in, hoping to find out who my general is. It was posted before, but never ID. Thanks for any help.
  2. Nearly as big as the one the ape is holding, but in ivory.
  3. In ivory (cites duty-bound) , we are talking old stuff here.
  4. Got some as well. Here is a British one, from a city I ofthen went too as a child. The trophy was how ever found here in a house clearing a few years ago. Only the 1938 and 1939 winner's have been mentioned...probably for a obvious reason...
  5. Still own this mask and recently found his twin brother on the net. Saddly the link died. Apparently sold in France in 2014... Never mind the "voor" and "na" text, that was ment for a practical joke...
  6. A bronze makers mark to a Belgian loc, 25 cm Ø.
  7. I am not speaking for military related clock's, but civilian clock's market dropped significantly. My father used to collect some. Mostly British clock's he braught back from our holliday in the UK, back in the seventies. Belgian clock's were hard to get, and much more expensive. Today I buy my clock's cheap, mostly under the 100 euro. And only Belgian one's. I still like them, but couldn't afford them back then.
  8. Found a chair showing great similarity's in the Ethnologisches Museum Berlin. Brought back in the early 1900's. Seen here with mine (on the right ).
  9. Hey Peter, the medals on the piano sign are only civil awards, that the compagny obtained by particiapting on music intruments exhibition. For the medals Julius Blüthner is wearing; I couldn't tell you like this. I would need to check them out one by one.
  10. Hello, I often come across music intruments during my daily searches, but here is just a part of a piano, I wanted to share. It can be dated prior to 1870, and it is just a pitty the piano is not attached to it anymore....they do fetch high prices. But the main reason I wanted to share thise is because I found during my research a portrait of the founder (Julius Blüthner), and it appears he was well decorated. I tought this might intrerest many here.
  11. Not just in Congo. The Chokwé people just didn't live only in Congo, in fact the Belgian Congo border did split theyr kingdom. The other part is situated in Angola. And it must have been in the late 17 th century that Chokwé's have been confontated with the European style chair.
  12. Hey Peter, sure! It measures 48 m high , by 24 by 32 cm.
  13. From a house cleareance. A litlle pré 1930 Belgian Congo Chokwé chair. It looks like a chair,but it is not ment to sit on it. It is a relic a status symbol. It not big, looks like a toy or a children chair... They can fetch treamendous high prices on auctions.
  14. A Belgian miniature I came by a while ago;
