Hagenauer canoe with figure

£995.00

A rare Hagenauer Chrome and Ebonised wood canoe with a figure wearing a coolie hat, it was probably originally designed as a  desk cigarette box but could be used  for keeping any small objects.

The two hinged domed boxes are made to look like a trading canoe’s cargo, with the figure holding  his long punt pole

This  design would put it in the  style of Franz Hagenauer who’s dates where 1906 -1986, putting in in the 1930s.

It has lost some of the chrome finish on the box shown  images number three, this runs along the back side and therefore is not so noticeable.

It has some rubbing on the ebonized wood consistent with age, the figure is complete and in good order.

Measurements;  48 cm long   7 cm wide   23  cm height of figure   pole 33 cm long
