Shield, Lagrange Bay, West Australia, Late 19th Century.
This beautiful old shield is rare in that the finely carved interlocking key design is on both side of the shield, normally this design is only applied to the back of a Lagrange Bay Shield and the front has verticle grooved striations. This is the only example I have seen with the design on both sides of the shield.
Circa Late 19th to Early 20th Century.
Provenance: Old Collection Australia. The Todd Barlin Collection
