AF580: Zulu War Shield

A nice old and large 19th century Zulu war shield. This intact and complete shield has the original stick with leather detail at the top. The leather tying and cutting is very intricate. Made from brown and white cow hide that is in good condition retaining much of the hair, but there are some battle scars on the front surface. The overall patina is good and dark from much age and use.    

53 1/2" overall with leather 32" tall by 25" wide. 19th century South Africa.    ....$3000.00
