Tapa Cloth Coaster From Papua, New Guinea, 4 Inch Diameter:
Tapa Cloth Coaster from Papua, New Guinea
This unique coaster came from Papua, New Guinea a number of years ago. It has the typical tapa cloth South Pacific design of a stylized flower in shades of black, brown and cream. It measures about 4 inches in diameter and has a woven grass edging and back. It has not been used as a coaster but has been stored away for several years and is in very good condition. There appears to be some loss of the surface paint color in the brown background in several areas but that has not happened through use since the coaster has not been used; perhaps the age of the coaster is a factor. There are no rips or stains. This pretty little piece is a good example of tapa cloth for those who like all things Polynesian. I welcome any questions that you may have.
