Wow -- what an amazing strand of rare trade beads. We have never seen this pattern of bead before or since! Most of the beads are in premium condition. A few of the beads have chips on the ends; one bead has a fairly large chunk missing from one side.
This necklace is a long one, approximately 37 inches. Most of the beads measure between 12 and 13 mm in diameter. Note that the strand is slightly stiffly strung -- it just doesn't want to bend too much. But it's still wearable -- just a fabulous strand!
