A highly agatised ancient Pumtek displaying 8 horizontal lines across a central equatorial stripe. This Pumtek came out of Burma in the 1980s and has remained in a private collection until recently. This design is more typically seen on round beads and therefore tubes with this design are much more difficult to find. Very dZi-like!
Collected in the 1980s.
Origin: Burma, Pyu/Tircul Period
Size: 21mm x 9mm
Condition: Excellent. With no breaks or repairs. Minor weathering/surface digs commensurate with age.
