Description
 
SOLD!

A superb authentic tabular pumtek with the sought after cross decoration or sun and moon design. Each face is polished smooth from being worn and cherished for centuries. A large tabular bead of particularly fine quality and perfect as a focal bead on a necklace. Most beads of this type only display four chevrons that make up the cross.  This bead has the much rarer cross design and 'additional' sun and moon in the apex of each corner. Not to be confused with 20th century Pumtek beads.

Sourced in the 1980s.
Origin: Burma
approx 29.5 mm
Condition: Excellent
