Antique 91gr Faturan Cherry Amber Bakelite Islamic Prayer Beads
Nice Faturan color, and complete, old 33-bead with matching imame and two cutters/separators Islamic Prayer Beads made of Faturan Bakelite material. Tests positive for bakelite with simichrome, hot water and needle for phenolic smell. Large 15x13.5mm approximate average size of beads, that have oxidized to dark cherry color and are full of swirls and clouds inside when viewed in light (damari).

Bead shape is barrel type that are nicely handcarved and in really good condition for age. The bead holes are well used, but have not been abused, and therefore are also in good condition. One minor non continuous crack in one bead that has not evolved into rapture.

Overall the beads have scratches from use and marks from carving process and from use, but look very beautiful, see pictures carefully. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you will get.
