Description

K317 – Subtle and beautiful silk women’s cloth with an unusual variant on the classic Asante red, green and yellow striped pattern called Oyokoman associated with the royal matrilineage of the Asante king.  Finely woven and with a good variety of motifs. Although vintage Asante kente is plentiful on the markets in Ghana virtually all are low quality rayon pieces and we have to work with a few expert dealers and sift carefully and patiently to find top quality survivors like this.  Dates from circa 1920-40 and is in excellent condition.

Measurement: 88 ins x 52, 224 cm x 132.
