Description Conservation Exhibitions Provenance Credit
Description The chain is made of double loops of wire constricted in their centers and twisted so that the end loops are in perpendicular planes. White and brown disk-shaped glass beads are threaded onto the chain; many are missing. The short length suggests that this was intended for a child.
