Large Dangly Vintage Kuchi Tribal Jewelry Choker

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

 It is an old tribal jewelry necklace - not a new reproduction.

MEASUREMENTS (1 inch = 2.54 cm)
     Length = Adjustable with ties 
     Front Drop = 4-1/4 inches (distance between the top and bottom of the necklace at center front)

     Weight = 8.3 oz 
     Width = 12 inches across beaded portion
     Shipping Weight = 14 oz
     Material = Metal; Glass beads; Cording

The wide neckband was generously studded with colorful beads that span its entire width, including 3 clusters of teardrop beads.

An elaborate fringe of long dangles with old coins, charms, and bells hangs below, clattering noisily together with movement.

Ties were more recently added on the ends for adjusting the length (tied at 14-1/2 inches on manikin).  

There are mild wear-patterns and a warm age-patina remaining after so many years.
