A rare composite eye bead made during the Warring States Period, circa 481 to 221 BC. The composite type of Warring States bead is made with a thin layer of glass overlaid on a clay or ceramic material core. This one is in especially good condition. From every aspect the frame of rich brown intersecting lines creates an almost mask-like structure for the blue and white, or yellow, raised eyes. This elaborate style of bead was only made during a narrow window of time in Henan province. Dimensions: width, 15mm; height, 13 mm. Condition: Expected wear; overall excellent condition, preserving much of the original gloss; small chips to the brown glaze around the perforation. Price: USD $360; CAD $468 (13% HST will be applied on all sales in Canada)
