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:  Tutsis are the second largest population division among the three largest groups in Rwanda and Burundi; the other two being the Hutu (largest) and the Twa (smallest). Small numbers of Hema and Kiga people also live near the Tutsi in Rwanda. The Northern Tutsi who reside in Rwanda are called Ruguru (Banyaruguru), while southern Tutsi who live in Burundi are known as Hima, the Tutsis who reside in Masisi which is in Kivu and they are known as Tutsi or Batutsi and the Tutsi that inhabit the Kivu plateau of Uvira and Fizi in the South Kivu province of the Congo go by Banyamulenge.
