Vintage Chinese Hand Carved Face Peach Pit Mala Prayer Bead 36 Necklace For Sale

Vintage Chinese Hand Carved Face Peach Pit Mala Prayer Bead 36 Necklace This sale is for a finely made and unique, hand carved mala bead necklace, that was made in China during the early 1900's.This strand measures 35" long and each bead is around 1" in length and 1/2" in width. This strand is simply knotted on one end and can be slipped over the head to be worn as is. This piece is unique in that the other mala strands I have seen are of 18 beads - this strand has 35 faces and a total of 36 beads. Each bead has been carved by hand out of a peach pit. The heads are very realistic with lots of detail even at the sides and ears of the beads and the back of the beads are plain. There are a few beads with hairline cracks to the pits, some of them are longer running the length of the bead, but they are all thin hairline cracks that haven't split deeply with a wide gap. The peach pits have a fresh looking surface with a nice sheen and crisp detail to the carving that doesn't have any dulling or surface wear and enhances the detail and character in the carvings. Each head is different with lots of character, some have mustaches some don't, some have defined and toothy smiles, and some even have earrings. The strand as is - is very secure and solid without any gaps or loosening to the strand. Overall this is a finely made and unique, hand carved mala bead necklace, that was made in China during the early 1900's that is in Excellent condition.
