This type of East African headrest is one of the most common, but in the example here, the larger proportions and horizontal orientation distinguish it from others. A warm, honey-brown tone patina is complimented by a string of various glass and natural beads attached to the braided, leather cord, no doubt linked to its owner's status. From the Kenya/Uganda border region, early-mid 20th century. Very fine condition. Provenance: Fedel collection, 1970's.
