A long hanging silver pectoral pendant from the Nubian people from Sudan and southern Egypt, probably around 1930 to 1950 because of the bakelite beads.
Today, Africans of Nubian descent primarily live in southern Egypt, especially in the Luxor and Aswan area, where this pectoral was sourced. A highly collectible item made of silver and bakelite beads. The shape is reminiscent of the Goddess Tanit, which could be an ancient Phoenician influence.
It has a very good patina of age.
There is a small loop at the top to allow suspension.
