These old beads, commonly referred to by traders as 'Television Beads' are a rare variety of Dogon bead that is differentiated by its slightly more irregular shape. The Dogon people are an ethnic tribe that inhabits a swathe of West Africa. They are known for their strong artistic tradition including wood-carvings and are also associated with a number of bead varieties. Possibly of Dutch provenance, this specific strand is unique due to the number of lavender colored beads. Individual beads measure 4-15 x 8-16mm diameter on a 34" strand. You will receive the exact strand pictured. Only one available.

This was a unique, one of a kind item and is no longer available.
