INTERESTING HISTORICAL PIECE EMBELLISHED WITH GUM LEAVES, KANGAROO'S & EMU'S. The Boomerang is 21 1/2" across in size. FRANK DONNELLAN was one of the greatest Boomerang Throwers of his time with many outstanding feats performed in the 1930's and later and genuine Donnellan boomerangs are rare and much prized by collectors. This one with its historical links to the City of PARRAMATTA is of course quite unique.
