Description

K318 – Exceptional museum quality Asante woman’s kente cloth, among the finest pieces we have collected over the past decade. The  classic Asante red, green and yellow warp striped background pattern is almost entirely concealed by dense finely woven weft designs throughout, framed by dramatic border designs.  Yellow and green predominate with small flashes of bright blue.

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 1900-30 and is in excellent condition.

Measurement: 72 ins x 40, 184 cm x 103.
