    These are really lovely items - and to get them as a gift is fantastic! Are they period items or 20th century?

    These date back to 1965 or there abouts, but to be honest they looked the same in 1865.

    Here's something else from my collection - a Zulu chiefs Knobkerrie. Note the five sections of woven copper wire. My contact in SA said it was 'For somebody of importance, or somebody who thought they were important.'
