A set of very interesting earplugs of the Zulu.
The largest pair is made of wood and dates from circa 1920.
It's a 'clip' model
They are painted with a typical symbol of the Zulu that one also finds on some beer pots of the Zulu.
The dimensions of this pair are 70 x 70 x7 mm.

The second pair is of full wood with a round nail head as decoration.
This type is the first model of earplugs that was made, from small to large to fit into the ear. These earplugs date from the beginning of 1900.
The dimensions are 68 x 68 cm.

The third and smallest pair is likewise from perspex and a clip pair.
What makes it special and rare are the small dimensions
40 x 40 x 11 mm

The three pairs are worn and in very good condition.

I acquired this in situ around 1975.

An extensive English documentation will be included for the buyer.
