Mali Oversized Terracotta Beads


Beautifully big and aged, these vintage terracotta clay beads from Mali are thought to have been used to weigh down fishing nets, however, their actual original use is not confirmed.

Adorning a wall, laying in a bowl, or set a top a stack of books, these beads add a cultural aesthetic to any space. We love their size and color, they are unique and hard to find, perfect for the collector or world traveler. The beads' small chips, corrosion, and pitting, all which are a normal part of their patina, attest to their age and extensive use.

DIMENSIONS: Overall Length: 21" long (doubled). Each bead is approximately 3 1/2" long x 1 1/4" tall.
