    This beautiful necklace and pendant originally came from West Africa, most probably from the Ashanti people of Ghana. The necklace itself comprises dozens of hand-cast brass beads. The pendant is rectangular with a ring at the end. The front of the pendant has been cast using the lost wax process with geometric motifs.

    A related necklace with similar beads is illustrated in Robbins & Nooter (1989, p. 201.)

    The necklace and pendant set has a superb patina and clear age. It is also stable and wearable.
