Necklace with an antique Ashanti gold pendant, originally from the Paul Tishman collection, with decorated antique Bauli tube beads.

Included in the design are very unusual antique glass trade beads, also antique African beads and ornaments carved from shell most likely made in Mauritanian, but traded also in North Africa.
