Yoruba, gilded brass beads, long & rectangular (31mm x 8mm) and the central bead is (38mm x 8mm). Early 1900s or later. While several beads look like they have been crushed and show signs of oxidation, corrosion and oxidation are a normal part of their patina and attests to their age and extensive use. Finally, these beads have been strung together using a laborious, macrame technique.

To have survived to the present, these beads have been cherished by their previous owners. To best care for this necklace, it is recommended that you store it flat and separate from other jewelry to reduce the chance of damage to your beads. To maintain the wonderful old patina, it is recommended that you do not polish these metal beads. We hope you enjoy and treasure your necklace as much as its previous owners have!
