Description

Beautiful early C20th Ewe kente woman’s cloth with a rare pattern layout and very finely woven weft float motifs. These include birds, lobster, swords, and an unusual hand with a miniature sword ring. The solid green background was created by dyeing blue cotton thread with yellow. Over the years it’s become a little patchy in places as shown in the photos. Otherwise the cloth is in excellent complete condition.

Measurements 74 inches X 51, 187 cm X 129.
