This stately village elder is hand carved by the talented woodworkers of Baule, an area of the Ivory Coast. He is wearing a Kufi cap, orange robe and green sandals. Being seated on a splendid green chair and holding a green cane in his right hand, this may indicate that the figure represents a blind man. His left hand has some damage as seen in the photograph.

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.
