This is a great old tassel necklace! This vintage piece comes from Afghanistan. It features handwoven glass seed beads shades of blue with a red accent. The beads are woven into the necklace section. Hanging down is a huge tassel. It is created from a mixture of elements. Red pom poms, gold colored sequins, gold plastic beads and unique little brown seed pods from this. Fabulous!

Please keep in mind that most Kuchi and Turkoman / Turkmen / Turkomen items are old and used items with a distinct aged patina. They are a nomadic Afghan people who have created amazing jewelry for centuries. Their colorful jewelry combines new, old, metal, beads, coins, stones and fabric. Many pieces are worn due to being used from every day wear, tribal celebrations, belly dance and wedding uses. They are made with a coin-base metal alloy.
Condition: Good vintage condition, vintage patina, the back of the necklace is sewn with a smaller beaded section. I suggest that you add a few more stitches to the one side to make it even more secure.

I am not an expert on vintage jewelry, but I do buy and sell what I love! Since these items are vintage, they may have a wonderful aged patina and are not meant or expected to look brand new. I treasure their imperfections as part of their charm and history.
