TUAREG
EHEL POST 42
52" high x 8.5 wide x 1" deep
$600 

This post has een vetted as authentic, with signs of significant age and use.

Four "Ehel" posts were placed in a tent to hold a long "Eseber" wall mat, which was placed around the bed to define space and create privacy.

Although the wood is extremely hard, Ehel posts are thin, intricate and fragile. This post survived in very good condition.
It is mounted on a 6"x6" imetal base.

This post has small scraps of paper fastened to it. We do not know the purpose of them and would appreciate expert information.
