YORUBA STYLE BEADED CROWN 73, NIGERIA
Photographs © Hamill Gallery
21" high (crown) - 37" high (with veil) x 10-14" wide
Despite the quality of workmanship and the elegant form, we believe that this crown was made to be sold. This one is in good condition, with only 2 missing strands on the veil.The inside is lined with part of a tan Yoruba ashoke textile.
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. Bird tails (including those on the sides) can be bent upwards or downwards if desired and hold those positions.
If you would like a stand for this piece, please inquire.
