West African Glass Talhakimt - Medium Blue Glass Tanfouk - Mali Mauritania Tribal Talhakimt - Tribal Belly Dance

Item No: JPB0009
Country of origin: Mali / Mauritania / West Africa
Qty in Stock: 12


Old glass talhakimt from West Africa.  These pretty and unusual items are used for pendants, hair adornments and other decoration, mostly in Mali and Mauritania.  These are made in many different sizes and colors, usually of glass or agate.  The larger glass pieces such as these were originally Czech trade beads originating in the early 1900s which were themselves based on an even older design from India. 

These are approximately 2 3/16 inches long and about 1 3/8 inches wide.  They have been used as tribal adornment in country and may be dirty or pitted from wear, and may have small chips or worn edges.  All are a medium blue color but there is some variation.  These can be washed and even scrubbed gently if desired, although they are glass and should be handled with care. 

Priced per piece.
