YORUBA BEADED CROWN 39, NIGERIA
Photographs © Tim Hamill
20.5 " high (crown) 34.5 " high (with veil) x 13" wide
Despite the quality of workmanship and the interesting and complex form, we believe that this crown was made to be sold.
The inside is lined with part of a pink Yoruba ashoke textile. There is a repair on the elaborate veil. It is best seen on the right in the first picture with a black background. Some of the white beads are dirty and not easily apparent in the photographs.
The bird on the top of the crown has an extension that inserts into a hole on the top of the crown. It is removable.
If you would like a stand for this piece, please inquire.
