A Large Old Toucouler Tukulor Silver Decorated Focal Bead on a Silver Chain.
From the Toucouleur or Tukulor People of W. Africa. May have been used as traditional wedding gift from a groom.
This is a special, hard-to-find pendant. It is decorated beautifully, with a chain connecting to it on both sides.
It would make a stunning addition to a collection and it is wearable as is.
This was most likely made within the last 30 years (based on evidence of wear). Not sterling silver. Looks like a mix of metal and silver.
Approximately 4 inches (90mm) long (including bails). Weighs 36 grams including chain.
Chain length 9 inches each side so total necklace length is approximately 22 inches.
