Extra-Large Afghan Kuchi Bells PAIR

Price is for PAIR.

These huge vintage Afghan Kuchi tribal bell-shaped beads were sturdily handcrafted during the early 1900's for this nomadic Central Asian tribe. They were worn dangling from garments and belts, even twisted through locks of hair or attached to head pieces for extra dramatic appeal.

They were extremely well made to withstand the rigors of nomadic life. Wound wire strengthens the upper portion and center, while colorful faceted beads in raised bezels decorate the base. Each tip was skillfully crafted with mounded decorative balls.

Large hoops make them easy to attach wherever you would like.  They are currently tied together with a multi-colored braided cord which loops nicely around a belt.

These huge beads have mild wear patterns and a warm age patina giving it a sheen that only the passage of time can produce. 

Price is for PAIR.
