Guest Book
An African beadwork panel decorated with parallel bands of white, blue, turquoise and green glass beads suspended from a loop of lustrous pearl-coloured beads. 20th cent., but not modern. Dimensions: 23 x 22.5 cm. square (excl. loop).

It is probable that the loop was once broken as it is tied in the middle. No other damage.

I assume this is South African, though the lack of triangular motifs seems a bit unusual.
