Tribal Ethnic Oceania Carved Breastplate Warrior Beaded

We are (unusually) reticent about commenting on this one. No idea where it is from, or it’s intended purpose. Possibly a breastplate from PNG. Any hints out there in the wide, wide world. Are there any students of ethnic culture that can identify this carving. May we note that the top uprights are partly hinged by secure weaving, indicating that it could be worn and adapt to movement.

Chaise Longue Sofa Carved Antique Victorian

This is a beautifully uphostered sofa from the late 1800’s, featuring carved wood and a rare button back. All ceramic castors are intact. Springing excellent. Highy recommended. No faults to mention.

Handy tip. Install one of these in the kitchen. While reclining you could embrace the new vogue for slow cooking.
