Very fine 1940s or 50s Solomon Islands shell bead belt (WWQ)

his belt is made of small white, red and black disks assembled by a master craftsman with a threading tension that allows it to “flow” through the fingers – the sign of a great bead worker. Everything about this belt is fine – there are no missing beads and no plastic inserts (as commonly found on examples from the 1960s onwards). Sixe: 52 x 7 cm/ 20 ½ x 2 ¾ inches excluding ties.
