A fine Eastern Pende Panya-Gombe African mask. Coll.: David Norden
Suppan auction Vienna
Visit the up to date african art auction list in the African Art Club.
I spotted a small auction in Vienna, Austria with some fine African Art pieces last month on May 20 2006.
Some of the pieces where from a good quality with a low estimate, and I thought I would be able to do some bargains, .... I was completely wrong, most of my colleagues in Brussels got the auction under there radar, and they got most of the pieces. Competition was fears and price went up ...
Most pieces where bought by Belgian dealers and you'll probably be able to see them at the next Bruneaf or in Paris.
All prices results without costs ( 20%). David Norden.

This was really a fine Songye with a good provenance, also
an etiquette under the base, and it was published already in the Songye book. I
had an offer from one of my clients but it went seriously higher.
It was a good auction to follow, people in Brussels are still awake...
