After 1937 - Good condition
A Kuba Bushong Cup from after 1937.
The Kuba (also called Bakuba) people are agriculturalist and part of the Bushong-speaking ethnic groups of the larger Bantu influence. They live in the south east of the Democratic Republic of Congo, between the Kasai and Sankuru rivers.
The Kuba cups, one of their most important art forms, is illustrative of the competition between different members of court. Sinc ehalf of the male population laid claim to titles in the 1880s, the competition was often fierce, and resulted in the creation of extraordinarily beautiful and highly decorative commonplace household items, such as wine cups.
