Unusual and rare
Islamic pendant necklace with original old jade stone beads
and ancient bronze bell pendant from the 15th-16th centuries.
Middle Eastern Arab style. This pendant necklace is a beautiful
combination of old jade beads and an ancient bronze pendant,
it's quite extraordinary and unique in its shape. Looks much
more beautiful than the pictures! Length necklace 9.5"
( total 19")
The bell is heavily
worn and is covered with a green-blue patina that indicates
a considerable age. No further details were given. Given the length
and the quality, this necklace was not intended for animal use
(as would be custom with jingle bells in the area).
