Interesting and unusual string of dark brown carved wood Beads, incised with various Oriental (Asian) symbols. The Necklace dates to the 19th Century with wonderful carvings on each bead, varying in subject matter from Oriental Symbols, Animals and Plant life. The Beads are a substantial size when on the neck. They vary in size, but on average, each are about 1/2" x 1/2". The Antique carved Wooden Bead Necklace is Choker length, measuring 16 1/2" long, with a plunger clasp. Is a wonderful piece in very good condition. Shows well in the photographs and of course, more detailed in person! Photographs taken with and without a camera flash.
