113 Rare Vintage Beaded Camel Wool Tassels

Superb rare tassels made of camel wool, glass beads and the very rare mini-cowrie shells.

Three separate strands - each containing balls made of camel wool - have been tied together with red, blue, yellow, green & white beads and cowrie shells in a geometric zome arrangement.

These are used by the nomadic herder groups in Rajasthan and Gujarat to decorate their beloved camels.

As these groups get settled slowly, such pieces - made purely for self-consumption and not for commercial sale - are becoming rare.

Estimated to be from the 1970s
