This is a wonderful Vintage Zulu Colorful Beaded Purse from South Africa. For many Zulu beaded jewelry, garments, and other accessories became important markers of identity. Bead work was a visual marker of social position, marital status, ethnic affiliation and location of the family’s homeland. Zulu bead work has been valued as currency, as decoration, and as a marker of identity. Bead work became a status symbol and an important item of personal expression as well. Stylistic variations of bead work such as pattern, color and color sequence indicate area or group affiliation. Colors and patterns take on more personally expressive meanings. Recently bead work has become a symbol of political identity as well, with color and pattern indicating political affiliation. This is a lovely old beaded Zulu Purse would be a great addition to your collection or home.
