Original Message:   Shiraz Face Beads
Hi there i think most of you old bead collectors have heard about shiraz face beads.and i thnk it was discussed here before.one of our friends was belive it is not proved making face beads in shiraz in ancient time and these beads in bazzar are replica.i was dissagree becuse i have seen many of them real old.but also there were fakes in the market. some years ago i met a man who was digger.i asked him about these face beads and he told me many story about places he found those beads.i discribe him that digging is not good and he must try to protect and ducument what ever he find.after that time he start to taking photoes from what he found.and later wrote a book in persian about graves and every thing he has seen.he gave many thing to officials to put in museum.unfortunatly many of beads he was found were not in market becuse of private collection and buyers.so we lost many information. on the other side Archaeologists here also were not intrested to follow beads story and you guess....lately i saw that man and i asked him to give me some pics of face beads founded around shiraz. here are the pics and i hope friends help to identify if they are made in some were else. sorry for poor cuality of fhotos becuse they are photo from photo. i start with a face bead i had before.lips red mouth black.bigger than normal size.secound one around black .with thoot.founded 200 kilometer far by shiraz. many thanks Ali
