African Cup Enameled Beaded Mug Zulu Cup

$18.75 $25.00

This is a wonderful Beaded Enamel Tin Drinking Mug or Cup from the Zulu Tribal People of South Africa. This is a One of a Kind and unique beaded item. Handmade Zulu bead work is a craft practiced by the women of the tribe. Usually older sisters pass down the tradition to their younger sisters. Zulu bead work almost always involves communication between the sexes in regards to relationships. The design and colors of the bead work together convey a message. For example a particular beaded necklace worn by a women may inform men that she is unmarried. Communicating relationship status and sexual intentions in this subtle manner helps the Zulu people avoid awkward social situations such as an unmarried man approaching a married women. What a conversation piece and unique treasure from the Zulu, not only artistic, but functional as well.

Shows age, but is in good condition, and one of a kind.
