Stunning beaded necklace, 1950/60s, from the Oromia region in Ethiopia.

Often worn by young girls of the Sidamo or Oromo people, the necklace has a leather base with many strings of small glass beads (the red beads are called White Hearts and were manufactured in Venise in the 19th century).

This necklace is also rare and special as it features in its center a bronze cast boss of an antique Ethiopian hide shield.
