Meyer: dealer and juggler

Oceanic art specialist reveals how he takes part in two significant Paris events at once
Multiple views of a rarity that Meyer is taking to the Biennale – an Eskimo tinder box made from the hollow root of a walrus tusk. It dates from the Thule Period (18th-19th century) and is equipped with a much older walrus ivory cap from the Punuk Period (600-900AD). It was collected by David McFall, whaleboat steerer aboard the bark Java from 1867-68.
Anthony Meyer’s selling show at the Parcours des Mondes is titled Nuts! and is dedicated to Oceanic items created from the coconut shell and used for ritual or symbolic purposes. It includes this impressive ladle with carved wood handle from the collection of noted art dealer Paul Guillaume.
