Offered for sale is this very nice example of a ‘Pitcairn Island’ carved friendship chalice / vase. The small island of Pitcairn is a British overseas territory situated in the Southern Pacific Ocean. Mutineers from HMS Bounty settled on the island in the late 18th century and many of the 50 (approximate) islanders living on the island today are direct decedents of the Bounty mutineers, (which included a few accompanying Tahitians). From the 1920’s, islanders started handcrafting items from local hardwood; including flying fish, birds and friendship chalices which were sold to visitors as souvenirs. This example of a friendship chalice is in very good condition with a pleasing patina and I would suggest it dates from circa mid-20th century. Although unsigned, the item is marked, ‘Pitcairn Island’.
9 ¾ inches tall.
