Egyptian faience armband
Description Armband, probably Dakota, constructed of bone or wood hairpipe beads strung side by side with sinew or another string-like fiber. Knotted strands of hairpipe beads and smaller beads dangle from the bottom edge of the band.
An armband or segment of a choker composed of tubular ceramic beads with blue glass faience glaze in a netted manner. Egyptian in origin, certainly not Native American. Whether or not this object is an ancient or modern item is unknown.
