Vintage African Tribal Decorative Loin Cover

This is a genuine old female Native loin or pubic cover, from we think Northern Africa. It appears to be woven from natural fibres with goat hair tassels. The loin piece measures 10" across the woven girdle and 8" in depth at center. This Loin Cover came with a collection of eight masks we are listing. The collection was obtained by a German Army Officer Pre-World War Two and taken back to Germany where it was then inherited by his daughter who later moved here to New Zealand. The information given to us was that the collection was gathered from Northern Africa, the Cameroons, and Ivory Coast areas. This lady and her family are now returning to Germany to live and are selling off most of their collections, arts etc. The collection pieces have to therefore be a minimum of 70 years old and probably are considerably older.
