Superb 19th Century Zulu Snuff Stick with Wire Binding
Old Zulu snuff-stick, apparently collected by a police officer in rural KwaZulu-Natal in the 1950s but dating to the end of the 19th century. The head is a flattened circle with a hole drilled to take snuff; unlike many examples the stopper is still present. There is a length of mixed brass and iron wire decoration under the head. Very good condition, overall length 33 ins, head 2.5 ins diameter, excellent condition.
