Collection of Beadwork

Sotho, Southern Africa. £360

Private Collection of African Beadwork. Sotho, Southern Africa

This collection of beadwork from Southern Africa comprises two young women's cache-sexes, a long thin beaded neck adornment and a fine head adornment. A similar example of cache-sex can be found in the publication, A World of Necklaces: Africa, Asia, Oceania, America from the Ghysels Collection (see image attached). Furthermore, it is possible that the head adornment was worn as a bridal piece - which, when attached to the bride's head, would have hung length-wise down the front.

Estimated Period: First Half of 20th Century

Ex Private Collection, UK
