Early 1900s Carved Wood AFRICAN Tribal Stool HEAD REST Ghana Nigeria
This original African headrest with detailed carving is probably from Ghana or Nigeria. It has a great patina and charming signs of use that enhance its visual appeal and sense of place in history. Slightly aged, with some varnish loss, dings and dents and other signs of use that do not detract. The base has an historic green baize covering, which is again a little aged. Measures approx 17.5 inches across the front of the rest x approx 8.5 inches in height x approx 7.5 inches in depth.

Authentic tribal art and African wooden headrests and neck rests are often important status symbols. Used mostly by men but also by women in some cultures, they are hand carved and used to keep the head lifted up while sleeping.
