* A Western Asiatic Gold & Agate Bead Necklace, ca. 1st millennium BC

Composed of fifteen barrel-shaped agate beads, graduated in size, and interspersed with sixteen high karat gold spacer beads; late 19th/early 20th century wire stringing and with later 18K s-clasp closure.   

Condition:  the agate beads with minor chips, accretions and wear that does not detract, the gold beads with some expected denting, one beginning to separate  but otherwise all beads intact and in very good to excellent condition overall, with nice signs of ancient wear. Just beautiful!

Dimensions:  Length: 21 1/2 inches (54.6 cm)

Provenance:  Sue Brown, London private collection, acquired in the 1970's.
