Description
Catherine Elliott, Nessa Leibhammer, 2017 DDF research:
Similar to examples from the Mariannhill Mission collection, at Marianhill near Pinetown, KwaZulu-Natal. Note the use of blue, white and red beads -- in the late 19th/early 20th century this combination also starts to be seen in what is now the Eastern Cape.
