Default A couple of shields

Greetings, would just like to request for ID and age estimate of these two shields. Unfortunately I have no better quality images of them. TIA!

Those shields look large. The one on the left looks vaguely like a Bukidnon shield photographed by Dean Worcester, the American anthropologist, in the early 1900. The large boss is in a similar position. See attached.


Bagobo shields have similar features to Bukidnon.


It's possible also that these shields are not from the Philippines.

Are they both metal shields?

Ohhh they are? I wasn't aware of that (I bumped into these in an old collection). Would like to know where the manufactured ones can be sourced. Thanks!!!

Some of these are made by Bagobo hands (like Bagobo armour, also for sale on the market). Some even come from Marawi City I was told, made to look like other tribal shields or fantasy shields. There are probably other producers.
