Wonderful African trade bead necklace with large resin centerpiece bead and tiny glass seed beads, in mint condition. It measures 16 inches end to end. The tassel drop is 4 inches long.
Very fluid, with 6 strands on either side of the centerpiece. The seed beads in black and deep red are strung on thread for perfect draping. A few gold and silver beads and one white bead on the tassel. That bead is purposefully placed. The large oval resin bead is a rich, warm shade of reddish brown.
The brass screw clasp works perfectly and dates this necklace to about 1970 for assembly. The beads may be much older.
Condition is Above Excellent!
