GTK that the Indian Pumtek (you received in 1983) were made by Burmese people that had emigrated to Mizoram, India. I did have the misconception that the more recent were simply bone beads dyed to look like the Old Burmese Pumtek, and an Indian "knock off". I can see on a map how close these two areas are, and this puts a new perspective on this context of Ancient, Old and Newer bead production.
Thanks again. I'll be back with more pics soon.

Also BTW NorthEastStyle on Instagram shows some great Traditional Dress and Beads, although often in a Magazine Style rather than more natural setting. But still many beautiful beads: https://www.instagram.com/northeastyle/
