About the object
There are numerous necklaces made from shells and plant materials found within Antonie Brandeis’ collection. An especially beautiful and rare example is this necklace fashioned from blackish-brown, round fruit, glass beads and thin discs of shell discs. It is furnished with a trapezoid pendant made from a curved, thin, red shell disc. The shell (II/0766a) used in this instance is very rare, which means that the necklace is very valuable. According to the collector, it was intended as a necklace for a child.
