Late 20th century - Nice condition

Set of tribal necklaces made of nassa shells. TOLAÏ tribe, New Britain, Papua New Guinea.
The necklaces contain hundreds of little Nassa shells.
The remarkable thing is that almost all of them are in the same size, therefore they have a very sleek primitive design.

Small necklace: 29 cm x 29 cm, height including stand is 45 cm.
Large necklace: 40 cm x 40 cm, height including stand is 61 cm.

Comes with the professional metal display stands.

Bidders need to be aware that several countries do not allow importing objects derived from endangered and other protected species, even if a certificate of origin is provided. By bidding, you confirm that you have familiarised yourself with customs laws and regulations of your own country.

    Envió deficiente. Pusieron mal la dirección. El producto venia con una raja.

    He sent deficient. They misplaced the address. The product came with a slit.
