Pashtun, Beaded Tassels

A finely beaded Pashtun multi tassel.

Both decorative (to us) and protective (to its maker) made to ward off the Evil Eye, note those opaque blue "Evil Eye" beads.

We carry a range of these beaded tassels in our shop, but are including a few of the best here on our website.

We simply hang them on a pin or nail for their visual appeal, but some have used them as blind pulls and chest key decor, however Belly Dancers happily put them to a more active use attached to their outfits and bags.

This pair features such an restrained mix of tiny translucent red, deep blue and deep green glass beads with opaque white and pale blue. The loop at the top has a "silver" metallic binding.

Probably Pashtun and from either Pakistan or Afghanistan, these were collected near the Khyber Pass, some years ago.

Age: Last decade (some of the irregular recycled beads may be much older.)

Size: H 113 mm x W 64 mm

Weight: 37 grams
