Asante Bronze Tribal Kuduo Gold Pot

KRAVE ANTIQUES
This wonderful African Ashanti / Asante lidded gold dust pot is made of heavy bronze and nicely cast with figures of a tribal chief with a rifle, servants and musicians. This interesting and rare piece has a wonderful patina, dates from the early 20th century and is a fine statement piece that looks stunning on display. Gold dust pots which are also known as Kuduo were once used by the people of Ghana in which to store their valuable possessions such as gold dust. Each one is individually made using the lost wax method and is unique as the mould is damaged in the process of making the item. Circa 1920.

Weight: 2.232 Kg

We love to travel and visit France and Belgium regularly where we have established lots of contacts that give us access to rare and unusual antiques. We love to find those special unique items and when we see something that gives us that ‘I must own it’ feeling we know that our customers will ‘Krave’ it too. 

Being an online only antiques store we know how important it is to give every order that personal touch.  We have built up regular buyers from all over the world and supply museums, interior designers, film and TV studios, private collectors and trade buyers in New York, Milan, Lima, Paris, Sydney, Hong Kong, Buenos Aires to name a few.
