20th Century large decorative vase. Styled as a figure head of a woman from the Ndebele Tribe native to South Africa. A fabulous and unusual piece for an African themed room.

Some imperfections to glaze to back of vase and one imperfection above the left eyebrow. Please view photographs as these form part of the description.

The South Ndebele peoples of Africa also wear neck rings as part of their traditional dress and as a sign of wealth and status. Only married women are allowed to wear the rings, called dzilla. Metal rings are also worn on different parts of the body, not just the neck.
