FINE TWO PRONGED HAIR PIN

KWERE, TANZANIA

Fine Hair Pin with Two Prongs. Kwere Culture,Tanzania

Swahili decorations, similar to those found on furniture and household items along the Tanzanian coast, adorn the geometrically-shaped body of this fine double pronged hair pin. The surface of the hair pin exhibits a smooth worn patina from handling and use.

Elaborate hair pins such as this would have been given as bridal or dowry gifts by a Kwere man to a woman, often by a father of the bride to his daughter. Kept as a symbol of marriage, these prized possessions would be passed down the generations.
