- Curator's comments
- Now regarded as second of two Christy Collection "Four Figure" items numbered 207. See separate record for first item, pair of stilts from Marquesas Is.
NB: whilst referred to as "second Slip 207" in Christy "Four Figure" Register, and registration Slip is filed with Christy "Four Figure" sequence, the number "207" originally referred simply to a sequence of material added by A.W.Franks to the Christy Collection at various dates in 1869 (this item on June 5th) and was not a "genuine" Christy "Four Figure" sequence registration number. See Christy Collection "Additions, 1868-77", p.56, no.207. (AMD,4/1999).
