A lovely long necklace of hand carved round bone beads and long columnar beads with a pierced design. The necklace ends in a large detailed basket with a large chrysanthemum, leaves and smaller flowers.
The necklace is 28" long, and the flower basket adds another 2 1/2". The basket measures 2 1/2" x 2" and is slightly curved toward the back.
The necklace is a creamy ivory-white - the photos make some of the beads look darker, but the contrast is not so evident when seen. None of the beads appear "brown" to the eye.
The necklace has the original screw clasp which works well,but the necklace can be slipped over the head. It has not been restrung. The original cotton thread shows no weak areas, but has stretched about 1/2".
No damages, no issues - just beautiful.
