YORUBA BEADED CROWN 46, NIGERIA
Photographs © HAMILL GALLERY
17 " high (crown) 28" high (with veil) x 12" 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 light blue Yoruba ashoke textile. 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.
