Large Afghan Kuchi Tribal Jewelry Hair Pendant

This large vintage hair-pendant was handcrafted during the mid-1900's for the nomadic Afghan Kuchi tribe of Central Asia.

It is old tribal jewelry - not a new reproduction.

Colorful beads encrust the surface, with clattering dangles below. An upper portion has a simple hook for attaching to other headpieces or directly to the hair (as in the manikin image).

There are mild wear patterns and a rich age patina remaining after decades of time.

This one-of-a-king pendant was sturdily made - it does not bend.

Size = 5-1/4 inches long x 3 inches wide

Shipping Weight = 8 oz

THE KUCHI are a nomadic group of people, who for centuries traveled freely across international boundaries in the Middle East and Central Asia.

Once, the Kuchi were the most prolific group of merchants who traveled the old trade routes of this vast region. 

Kuchi jewelry and clothing is renowned for its vibrant energy, exuberant colors, and creative spirit.
