THE LAST THREE ITEMS FROM THE PBF CONSIGNMENT (PBF201, PBF204 & PBF212), IF PURCHASED INDIVIDUALLY AT THEIR LISTED PRICES, WOULD TOTAL $1660. WHEN FIRST LISTED, THE TOTAL FOR THE THREE WAS $2550!! NOW, IF THEY ARE PURCHASED AS A GROUP, THE PRICE IS ONLY $895.00. This necklace (PBF212) is made up of tiny Pre-Columbian shell, ceramic and bone beads enhanced with 23 modern gold-plated beads to add color to the wearable collection. The ancient non-metallic beads were found in the area of Yumbo, an old town in the middle Cauca Valley of western Colombia. Generally related to the late Calima Period, c.1200-1500AD, the beads have been assembled into a balanced and decorative, easy-to-wear, 23” long necklace that is centered with a 7mm orange spondylus shell pendant carved in a shape reminiscent of the popular seated Quimbaya ‘Retablo’ figures found somewhat further to the east. This simple but attractive necklace comes with a descriptive card for display, a map of Colombia high-lighting the Calima area in which the Yumbos lived, and our certificate guaranteeing authenticity.
