Beautiful Asmat dagger from cassowary bone.
Please see the photos for the details of this lot.
I am selling a number of items from my own collection, this Asmat dagger was shipped to the Netherlands in 1952 by a former Shell employee..
The attached photos show the original crate in which the dagger was shipped at the time along with other items.
Please note, it is only about this Asmat dagger not about the crate or the other items.
I put up for auction two more items from the same crate.
