Hi Kati,

Possibly made in Ghana, late 19th Century
44 inches height overall; 20 1/4 inches wide, 19 inches deep

A Ceremonial carved wood and brass sword in scabbard and a bow with quiver and arrows
Probably 19th Century
$300-500* for the two items

Hi! Thank you so much.
Dimensions are: 20.25 inches wide x 19 inches deep x 44 inches tall. I also added photos of some items that my parents said go with the chair. Thank you!!

Thanks so much, Kati,
I've added the description and value of the ceremonial sword, bow and arrows to this; the pottery figure has hardly any value and is 20th century

Haha thank you! That ugly pottery figure - it was one of the scarier items from cleaning out my dad’s garage and I attached it by accident. I tried deleting it several times but kept getting an error message. Thank you for your appraisal!!
