This second Pre-Columbian bead necklace (111.6HD) from the Orlandini Museum that once active in the city of Lima, Peru, comes with a copy of their certificate dated August 1955 stating that it was assembled from finds made in the Trujillo area on the North Coast of Peru. Acquired by Lorenzo Fritz from a private US collection decades ago, the beads in this necklace area almost certainly Moche in age dating c.100-800 AD. Though there's no way of telling whether the assembly produced by Orlandini exactly matches the way the beads were originally strung or otherwise used, the intricate Orlandini creation is believed to be in a style that that has been deduced from ancient works of Peruvian art. Made up of a variety of predominantly 2-3mm wide, green colored stone discoid beads (imagine the hours and possibly days that went into their manufacture!), it measures a total length of @ 22" from end to end. This very attractive grouping comes mounted in a Riker-styled collector frame along with a descriptive card, the above mentioned Orlandini cert copy, a map of Peru pin-pointing the Trujillo area, a bio of prior owner Lorenzo Fritz, and a certificate guaranteeing lifetime authenticity to our buyer.
