24.5" Graduated Carved Pre Ban Ivory Rose Beaded Necklace
Here is a wonderfully carved rose bead necklace made of carved elephant ivory beads. Pre-Ban this necklace dates from the 1940's. The screw clasp and the smaller round beads are also carved ivory with striations and crosshatching.
The largest bead is about 15mm and the smallest about 4mm and weighs 24.6 grams. In very good condition with some overall yellowing. Strung on a fibrous string that is fraying but still strong. Tested and guaranteed. Lovely piece!
