CUSTOM, IMPORT AND LICENSE FEES HAVE BEEN PAID. SHIELDS ARE SENT TO YOU FROM VIRGINIA. BUYING DIRECT FROM AFRICA MAY PRESENT YOU WITH A SURPRISE PURCHASE AND COST EXPENSIVE RETURN FEES.

Prices of Zulu Shields are based upon difficulty of obtaining a specific color of hide. There is no sacrifice to workmanship. All shields are made to authentic specifications. Shipped from Virginia for U.S. and World purchases.

AUTHENTIC ZULU SHIELDS ARE MADE ONLY FROM COWHIDE AND HAVE A CENTER POLE.

Our authentic Zulu War shields are made by a Zulu Shield-Maker whose work is unsurpassed. Each shield is an art form and a striking conversation piece. These shields are unique to R & R TRADERS and sold around the World, to stores and individuals for decorating rooms and offices. Many are sold to Military and Other organizations that present them as farewell gifts.

Other companies show a representative picture of a shield, then will send you whatever color is available or they will require you to describe a color then try to find something similar. You will not likely receive what you want. When you choose an R&R Trader Shield, that shield is exactly what you will receive. We are located in Virginia, USA

Zulu African Shield from RRtraders.com   "I'm a collector of 19th Century British militaria -- to include Victoria's adversaries -- and needed a Zulu shield to complete the antique Zulu spears and knobkerries in my collection. I gave up on acquiring an original shield so researched reproductions. Your shields were the most authentic I found -- and I am more than pleased with the results. Thanks and regards."
