Kina Pectoral
Highlands, Papua New Guinea,
Pearl Shell, Pigment, Natural Fibers
Mid. 20th C. or earlier
8.5" W x 7" H, Strap 10"

This pearl shell was treasured in a former life. The shell edge is worn thin from wear.  There is an elegant beauty to the aged, rich color of the shell combined with remnants of a once heavy red pigment coating.  The natural and pigmented fiber strap is in good condition and has aged well.  It is probably one of many replacement straps.  Small native repair to shell.

$550
