Wonderfully vibrant necklace of mixed African trade beads (largest: 24mm X 17mm) and OLD Brass beads (20mm X 20mm) from Nigeria, 23 inches long. These beads were strung to liven up a suit or to be worn with blue jeans and a casual shirt. The approximate age of these beads is the early 1900s. The overall condition of these beads is good. These beads have been traded across at least three continents and graced many owners, their patina attests to their age and use and includes some end chips, pitting and corrosion. Finally, these beads have been strung together using a laborious and intricate 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!
