African Kuba Gourd Copper Pipe - Congo DRC
Traditional Kuba Tribal Gourd Pipe made using a carved gourd and intricate copper wrapping for function, beauty and identity. I'm told this is a mid-century item passed down in the family and that is was made for use, not just decor.
In Africa, when I would see a pipe in a vintage store on display, it was usually standing straight up on a stand. The person who makes my stands here believes items should be displayed as they are used in life, and this is how he decides the design of the stand for all of the items I bring to you.
