A collection of 12 unusual West African bronze plaques, dating to around the mid 20th century. These small plaques were made using the lost wax process and probably originate from the area of Benin, Nigeria, Cameroon and Ghana . They are in high relief with various protruding motifs including crocodiles, spiders, antelope heads, double headed serpents and a pair of bells with striking stick. Two have tribal figures springing from their surfaces. They are beautifully made and quite detailed. They all have integral spikes moulded into their backs and were made to be mounted onto a wooden door, wall or column.
They are in good condition with an appealing aged patina.

Welcome to Ginger Tom's Curious Eclectic.  We are a husband and wife team, both with a lifelong interest in antiques. Our business stems from the usual collector turned dealer scenario.  As our own collections grew, it became obvious we needed to redistribute some items in order to make space to buy new treasures to feed our own habit.

Buying to sell seemed the natural progression from this. We have been involved in buying and selling since 2004, but have only recently taken the decision to establish an online presence. We don't specialise in any particular area, but our interests do influence our stock purchases to a degree.

Our stock includes a varied mix of unusual antique, interesting vintage and stylish contemporary objects that would suit many different settings. Our key criteria is that we only buy, and therefore only sell, items that we would have in our own home and believe that if we like something, others will too.

Our opening hours are 9.30am to 5.30pm, Monday to Friday.
