A fine highly agatised pair of ancient Pumtek beads. These impressive beads display 6 and 5 zig zag stripes. They are more unusual in that the zig zag stripes run the full length of the bead. Most Tiger Pumteks have a design that is broken up by two double end stripes. These beads only have one end stripe which visually makes the beads look much longer. Both display a lovely usage patina from centuries of heirlooming and being worn on the body. The flecks in the stone show the original grain of the fossilwood. Both came out of Burma in the 1980s and have remained in a private collection until recently.

Condition: Excellent, with minor weathering commensurate with age.
Origin: Burma
6 Stripe = 42 mm x 9 mm
5 Stripe = 41 mm x 9 mm
