Early Clay Native American Trade Beads final REDUCTION SALE

Early clay Native American trade beads. It wasn't until setting up at an antique show, by chance being next to a Native American antiquity dealer, that I found out just how special these beads are. It was after the early 18th century that Native American Navajo Indians were introduced to metal through trade; and the earliest pieces were made with bits of iron. Before then they used what was available in natural, including clay. Most clay beads were plain. This is an exceptional clay necklace, hand painted with green turquoise and white strips. Dating is unknown, but probably mid to late century due to the colorful design. Measures 19.5 inches, strung on string with a brass jump ring closure.
