This is an ancient and beautiful Middle Sepik River neckrest with a fantastic provenance. It was collected by Adolf Roesicke on the Kaiserin_Augusta-Fluss Expedition of 1912/13. It then went into the Linden Museum, Stuttgart with inventory numbers 92475, L. 1437/154. Subsequently it went into the famous Claire Zeisler Collection in Chicago in the 1950/60s. It is from the Iatmul culture, is of course pre-contact, stone-carved (look at the photo of the underside of the heads), dates to the mid 19th century, is 22 3/4” (57.8cm) in length and the price is available upon request.
