hi there again my good art historian friend
again, i really appreciate you taking your time to help me out.
i owe you.
first we have this wooden animal, with i believe tiger stripes, its two front legs are jointed so that they can move a little bit, and the toung hangs
outside of the mouth.
the fact that the legs are jointed and that the toung hangs out, makes me believe it is a childrens toy of some kind.
i bought it on a fleamarket in a town here in sweden called Malmö, this town is known for having many nationalitys residing in it, i do believe that
80 percent of its inhabitants are of forregin origin, that makes it so that this little thing could be from practically anywhere in the world, the
place where i bougth it had lots of asian stuff, so there is a good chance of it being asian in its origin.
thats all i got on this one
the next little thing is a lion carved out of slate, i do belive that slate is pretty hard to use as statue material, because its hard and easily
broken cause of its layered composition.
it got an hole in its chest and it is broken at its legs, it also got som bright dirt residue in most crevises and scratches, its flat on the
this one is bought at the same place as the other little things youve helped me out with before, and i do believe that it is from the same home even
as the previous artifacts, those artifacts where from africa and afghanistan.
now the fact that it is flat on the back makes me think doorknocker,
and thats all i got on that one.
happy hunting, and thank you yet again friend
