    Donated to a rummage sale. Origin unknown. Most likely African or Indian. Approx 47" long. 7" wide with small sea shell on fringe. Beadwork is pristine, backing is mattress ticking. Apparently hand sewn. Animal motif, rabbit, zebra, elephant and mask. Some of the animals are stuffed to make a three dimensional effect.

      Further investigation suggests that this might be a beaded sash by the Yoruba tribe in Nigeria. There are many similarities but not enough to be certain.
