About

An early 20th century wicker Congo shield.

This beautifully decorative Congo shield is a splendid example of a Classic woven type. Cleverly constructed to allow both substantial defense and swift mobility to its bearer on the battlefield, this piece was also conceived with a fabulous sense of aesthetics. Its geometric, chevron-like motifs lend a strikingly modern feeling to a most traditional object.

Provenance: William Simmons Collection, NYC.
