What does this mean?

Dear Timo,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry.

The presented object appears to be an Indonesian Moko or Mokko drum from the island of Bali or Alor. It is hourglass-shaped was made out of chiseled bronze and has measurements of 30 cm diameter and ca. 50 cm in height. "Mokkos" was an important part of the bridal price as well and functioned as a trade object and functioned as money. This piece was probably made in the late 19th century or 20th century.
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 800 to 1.800 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
