Set of 4 Beaded Blanket Pieces (NGURARA)- Ndebele People, South Africa

$280.00
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.

Due to its age, there are some natural wears and tears and missing beads. It is 4 separate pieces that were once whole, and like all this beadwork, it is sold in as-in condition.
