A stunning and luminous necklace of these antique Bohemian glass egg-like beads with a central old crystal bead. 28 in all. These 19th Century Bohemian glass beads are quite rare to find and here is a necklace made of very rare large beads and old carnelians. The last photo shows a tribal Fulani woman from Mali wearing a mix of these beads and carnelians.
The glass beads measure from the largest at 3.5cms to 1.5cms. Beautiful wear and patina, it sits nicely on the neck.
