Donated to Brighton Museum by Wlliam S Proctor in 1935. A note in the accession register reads:'Asked for further information, Mr Proctor replied, 9th Sept 1935: "A brother of mine, who has lived in South Africa for some years, gave me the beadwork when I was out there in 1912. He told me it had come from Bechuanaland, and that it had come into his possession, as far as I can recollect, about 1910."'
