Overall Condition Good. Most of our pieces have spent decades on at least two continents, and have been treasured by several owners.   Small splits, scrapes and cracks are a normal part of their patina attesting to their age and extensive use.  We examine each piece carefully when we receive it and report any damage we find in our listings.  Please look carefully at the pictures which may also reveal condition and damage.

Additional Information:

The Rendille lead a peaceful nomadic life in north central Kenya. They cling to a nomadic life of herding camels, goats and cattle. Harassed

constantly by the more powerful groups of Oromo and Turkana, these people lead an extremely harsh existence. Some sources also report problems

with the Somali, but the Somali have had a relatively benevolent view of eh Rendille as distant relatives.
