Polychrome Bracelet 11698
Leti, Indonesia
Glass
17th Century or earlier
4 inches 

These polychrome glass bracelets are extremely rare and sought after. There is a theory that these came to the Moluccan Islands in exchange for spices, brought by the VOC Dutch East Indies Trading Company in the 17th Century.  Other scholars believe they could date to the 14th-15th Century Majaphait Period and were made in Java. This bracelet belonged to the late King of Leti, who died 20 years ago when I collected it.
