An absolutely stunning set of antique Tibetan beaded, possibly ceremonial, jewelry & clothing. The hand-made beads appear to be primarily coral and turquoise with other carved stone or agate tubular beads mixed in. The belt and necklace were purchased from a collection of worldwide antiques and collectibles from the estate of the lady who was the social secretary to the Duke and Duchess of Windsor for several years. She accompanied them on their travels around the world and accumulated an incredible display of decorative arts and antiques. Both pieces are in excellent, used condition. There are no marks or maker's inscriptions that I can find. The necklace is 4 1/2 inches H x 5 3/4 inches W. The attached straps are a little over 12 inches long. The belt is 4 3/4 inches H x and 28 inches L. The beads comprise 13 inches of the length and the straps make up the remaining 15 inches.
