FINE AND RARE 19TH C. FIJIAN PRIEST'S DISH ELEGANT FORM AND MASTERFULLY CARVED - NO RESERVE Originating from the Viti Levu region of Fiji, offered is a particularly fine yaqona dish that would have been the exclusive property of the priestly class. Carved in a slightly oval shape, the dish measures 12 inches (30.5 cm.) in diameter at its widest point and 10 ½ inches (26.5 cm.) at its narrowest point. The dish sits atop a round openwork base that is connected via four spiraled legs that have a lovely organic shape. The dish is carved from a single block of sacred vesi wood and has a rich coloration and a fine glossy patina.
