Vintage African Beadwork Tapestry Remnant in Shadow Box


This exceptional and intricate early African beaded art work in blues and greens on a white background depicts a grand building or home. I purchased the tapestry remnant from a couple who acquired it while living in Africa some years ago. It is framed in a shadow box. The tapestry measures 18" x 14".
