Once you handle the set you will know why it was in that collection. Beautiful and genuine antique Faturan, Egypt cut, circa 1930 or earlier.
These truly older beads are really rare. Very special color; words cannot do justice when under sunlight.
Weight is 50 grams (which is rather impressive for a set with only 23 beads and a short imam/papa and no tassel). Genuine antique Faturan strong clicking sound.
The Imam/Papa bead has been moved closer to the beads as shown in the last picture so that it becomes an Islamic Tesbih vs. In outstanding condition for its age. Feels like a treasure in the hands!
