Hand carved by the woodworking Baule people of the Ivory Coast, this painted figure is wearing an orange uniform and white tropical Pith helmet. His stance suggests that he is making his mind up about something.
Sourced in France, the country has long had involvement with its colonies in Africa, including the Ivory Coast. This item has some age and may well have been taken home by a French bureaucrat in the 1950s.

It's fair to say that at Grovetrader we have an eclectic mix of decorative, antique and vintage items including cast aluminium hat blocks, African wood carvings, lighting, ceramics and much more.

We source our wares on regular trips to France.  This gives us the opportunity to combine two things we love doing most, scouring antique shops and brocantes for lost treasures, whilst enjoying the beautiful Burgundy countryside and villages.

Please call Amanda and Will if you have any queries or you can visit our website for information on shipping and delivery.
