Nice strand of Kushan/Bactrian of mixed stone (mostly carnelian) beads. I acquired these along with coins dating from 1st- 4th CE from the same site in North West Pakistan, so these can be dated no later than 1500 years old.

This was crafted from chased and repoussé steel alloy which is a much more difficult medium to work than softer copper. This dates to circa 19th century, with traces of pigments on the eyes and crevices around the mouth ears...
