Orma Tribal Necklace - circa 1950


Code: 11438


H: 40cm (15.7")

These wonderful and unique aluminium Tribal Necklaces are made and worn by the Orma Tribes in the North West of Kenya and in Southern Ethiopia.  Extraordinary imagination and work has gone into creating these necklaces - aluminium hand carved beads interposed with the occasional tubular bone bead - ending with a beaten aluminium pendant - so clever, so rare and so chic! - Circa 1950
