Bamboo pole 7 feet long- 6 inch diameter split in half and was carved on one side. Carving are Samari - on horses- in a village scene the runs the entire length of the pole. Very deep carving and beautifully done.
We had this for 50 years inherited from old friends who are past now. There were 6 of these made special for a firearms gun display. I only have one pole as inherited .
I'm an appraiser for Mearto and it's a pleasure for me to be able to help you.
Beautifully carved antique Japanese bamboo pole, it is decorated with a samurai warrior.
The valuation is based on prices in the Asian art market at auction houses and antique shops around the world, we consult several databases.
