Nice example with two small tears at the upper edge and a few slight foxing spots at the borders otherwise in good general condition, embellished with a bright and accurate recent watercolouring.
New Ireland Island is part of the Bismark Archipelago and is the most north-eastern Province in Papua New Guinea; natives are represented with their head dresses, jewels, masks and weapons.
From 1885 to 1914 the Island was part of German New Guinea and was named Neumecklenburg, the interest of the Germans was in copra plantations.
The control of the Island was taken by Australia in 1914, during World War II was occupied by the Japanese Army until 1945, the Australian administration continued until Papua New Guinea became independent in September 1975.
