Up for your consideration is this WONDERFUL antique Baltic amber Islamic prayer bead tesbih! It is made from beautiful butterscotch Baltic amber beads. There are 51 beads which vary slightly in size and measure from approximately 10mm X 11mm up to approximately 12 X 11mm.
These amber beads have nice marbling and the very desirable natural old amber egg yolk color and are VERY OLD. The beads are a rare barrel shape, and are strung on green cord. This tesbih weighs a total of 40.7 grams on my digital scale, and measures approximately 22" long (not including the tassel), and hangs approximately 11 " long (not including the tassel). 100% ANTIQUE BALTIC BUTTERSCOTCH AMBER!This piece is in EXCELLENT antique condition. Some of the beads are worn at the ends which is normal and to be expected with antique Baltic amber beads of this age.
The holes of the beads are also worn from age. Please check out al of the photos provided as they are an important part of the listing. The minaret shaped imame appears to have been replaced at some point in the existence of this piece and is not Baltic amber. It is not Bakelite, and appears to be faturan amber.THE COLOR OF THESE BEADS IS NOT AS INTENSE ORANGE IN REAL LIFE AS THEY APPEAR IN THE PHOTOS. Please feel free to ask any questions you have, and be sure to check out my other GREAT items!
