- Curator's comments
- Register reads:
[SOLOMON IS., perhaps GUADALCANAR (W.B.F.)]
The initials and brackets indicate that this provenance is conjectural, and the style makes it unlikely. Very similar examples (Oc1944,02.1391, Oc1944,02.1392) are attributed to Bougainville. Ribbe (1903:264) writes of Roviana: "Broad sleeve-like armbands with beautiful patterns, yellow, red and black, were sometimes brought in from Cape Grace and sometimes made by the people themselves and worn as festival decorations." (Cape Grace, so far unidentfied, could be Bougainville).
