The twelve diverse strands of beads illustrated in this group (100.101HD, 100.217HD, 100.88HD, 102.29HD, 102.85FHD, 96.996HD, LLL170, MAJP, MAJP99.1, WJF356, WJF451 and WL439) include an interesting assortment of ancient Scytho-Sarmatian, ancient Persian, Pre-Columbian, African trade, Indian trade, and ethnographic beads. The strands range in age from the 2nd Millennium BC to the 20th century. Most of the necklaces are wearable, but two and possibly three of them are not. The ancient beads include glass, stone, clay and shell. One of the ancient necklaces includes a rare green glass Sassanian donut seal. The jet beads from the Crimea, though in only fair condition, are very rare and are seldom found in any decent condition. An intriguing collection for the bead collector and the specialist, each photo shows first our inventory number in brackets followed by a brief description. Next comes the age, the types of beads, the length of the necklace, the culture to which it is assigned, the geographic location from which the beads came, and finally the price. A few of the photos are further annotated with comments concerning condition. Select or ask any question by referring first to the Trocadero Item Number on this page, and then to our Inventory Number shown on the given photograph. Each strand of beads purchased from this page will be presented in a glass-fronted display frame and accompanied by any pertinent biographical write-up, our certificate guaranteeing authenticity, and when the geography needs amplification, a map showing the general area in which the beads in the specific necklace were found.
