Circa: 1930-1960
Condition: Excellent
Size: 26" with 3" Pendant
Type: Necklace
Manufacturer: Unknown

Ox bone jewelry dates back to the mid 17th century and is still being made today in Thailand, Bali, Japan, Africa and China. Most of the jewelry made for export is crudely made, which is how I would describe this piece, although much time was needed to hand carve them. Much of the newer pieces are in a dark color and may be stained. I have to admit I know very little about it, nor can I find anything helpful online. Much can be told in the design, since certain motif popularity has changed over the years.

I have several nice ox bone necklaces I bought from an estate. This necklace is the largest. It looks unused with no patina from use. The large three inch pendant has a carved elephant and along the 26 inch beaded necklace are large one inch carved elephants. It has a bone screw back closure.
