|Re: Re: BUYING BEADS IN EGYPT -- floorkasp||Post Reply||Edit||Forum||Where am I?|
I know that ancient beads are offered in Egypt, but I do not know where and under what conditions.
I found a single ancient piece myself (may post it later), aside of another single Venetian bicone, Egyptians seem to admire so much. That purchase was neither in an antique-shop nor from a bead-dealer - just a lucky find from a street vendor.
I will check old posts - thanks for the hint - but it needs an experienced bead-hunter to find the right sources. I am after certain AMARNA specimen. The recent discussion with photos on this beads gave me the inspiration to give it a try.
And I have to visit KITCHERNER's ISLAND again - a natural treasure of the special kind (seen most of the graves and the museum).
It was the Khalili-market, you spoke about...?
