Necklace of Ancient Beads from Mali. Circa 900-1400 AD. A handsome strand of carnelian, quartzite, and other beads -- mostly indigenous to Mali. Also seen are a few medieval Islamic, a couple of modern, and perhaps a Roman or two. The variety of beads is due to the nature of the numerous trade routes passing through Djenne, Mali. A very fine strand, and harder to obtain these days. Length: 24".
Estimated Value $200 - 300.

Realized $115
