From the Ndebele women in South Africa, the 'Nguba,' or Marriage Blanket, was usually made from a Middelburg blanket which was customized with elaborate beadwork by the owner throughout her married life. It became a spectacular item as the woman continued to add beadwork, and the original blanket may have worn away and been replaced several times. These strips of beadwork adorned such a blanket.

Two magnificent pieces, beautifully mounted.
