Item details

You will receive the exact bead depicted in the pictures.

This is old bead from Afghanistan. My research leads me to believe that it is most likely from the early part of the 20th Century (close to 100 years old). It is fabricated from a metal of unknown alloy and has an inscribed design. This treasure is quite rare and highly collectible.

Please keep in mind it is a vintage a vintage item and is not in perfect condition. The ends are well worn and there is a patina consistent with its age. It can be polished if you choose, but I left it as I find them for those who prefer an aged patina. This is a wonderful old bead and perfect for a collector.

Additional policies

Many of the things you will find in my shop are vintage, ethnic items. Please keep in mind that these are often made by primitive people under primitive circumstances and are rarely what we would consider to be perfect. There may be mismatched jewels, a definite patina and often there are irregularities in the metal. This is common and should be expected with this type of jewelry. I leave the patina in place for those who prefer an aged appearance. Most items can be polished with a mild jewelry cleaner if that is your preference.
