As in the Chin ethnic group in Burma (not chin bones), eclectic strand of round wood, cylindrical bone and horse tooth beads. Some of the bone beads have “pumteked”, i.e. dyed to resemble old stone pumtek heirloom beads, possibly by a wax resist method. These were collected in the 1980s and had some age at the time so I will date around 1960. Total L: 71cm/28in.
