Tribal Art

The market for Tribal Art is found in pockets, with the majority of provincial auction rooms not understanding the subject, Bamfords have an ever growing reputation in this field.

Aboriginal, Maori, and South Sea Island clubs, paddles, shields, and art have been collected fiercely for decades.

North American inuit carvings, Navahoe pottery and native American beadwork almost always find their way back to Canada and the U.S.A. It is the growing market in African tribal art with its plentiful supply of 20th century examples that are appealing to the interior designer and young collector with prices starting from £50 or so, leaving early and rare examples to be battled over by the serious collector.

Tribal sections are held quartely in the major fine art sales.
