BEAUTIFUL ZULU BEADED PIPE LATE 19TH/EARLY 20TH CENTURY

Southern Africa. £560

Late 19th/Early 20th Century Beaded Pipe. Zulu Culture, Southern Africa

The elongated stem of this Zulu pipe has been beautifully decorated with early glass beads, which have been arranged into patterns of beaded bands. Alternations of translucent late 19th Century red (white heart), blue, white and black beads embellish the entirety of the long stem, leaving only the carved wooden mouthpiece and head exposed. Affixed to the stem of the pipe are two twisted strands of beads in the same colours, which would have possibly served as a handle for carrying the pipe.

Height of Pipe: 8.5cm

Custom Mount - Width: 35.5cm, Height: 12.5cm

Estimated Period: Late 19th/Early 20th Century
