About this object

String of alternating cylindrical beads and disc beads. Was once mounted on card and recorded as 18 inches in length. The measurement of 530 mm long is based on the folded string being 25.5 mm long.

Was found in the 1976 gallery with the wrong number ( and was assigned this number as it is similar to one string of beads from the Dixon-Nuttall collection that was unlocated. It may require further investigation.
