[ ZZ13899 ] Antique Tabua Ceremonial necklace solid large Ivory tooth 187mm long
Antique Tabua Ceremonial necklace solid large Ivory Sperm Whale tooth 187mm long,
The tooth is dense and heavy with partially hollow gum nerve end. Highly rubbed & polished and neatly bored across the pointed end to provide an anchor point through which to pass the coconut thread for making the four-element plaited sinnet. At the wide end, another hole has been bored for the attachment of the sinnet.
The Sinnet of this one has become detached, if you wanted to re-attach it you probably could easily enough but i leave things as I find them.
