Vintage Hand Crafted pre-Columbian Beaded Necklace

Vintage Hand Crafted pre-Columbian Beaded Necklace

250.00

This is quite an interesting piece, after doing some research, I am led to believe that these beads were hand crafted in pre-Columbian Ecuador. Each terracotta orange or black clay whorl has a unique carving of what seems to be a representation of an animal. I've been able to identify a rabbit, a fish, a pelican, among other animals. They are in excellent condition and this unique piece is perfect for history buffs or those who enjoy the refined tastes of the pre-Columbian South American culture.

They are stringed together by a thick thread encased in conical silver colored metal casings. It measures 26 inches from end to end. There are a total of 26 clay beads.
