It is quite certainly a traditional group of beads , used until the 19 th century in the Morbihan region , in french Brittany . It was worn during a period of nine days , for curing eye disease .
Same ensemble existed , in modern glass beads , four clear and one black , in the middle of 20 th century .
I bought it at a flea market , as it is , circa 2006 and it took me almost ten years to identify it .

ref. : Lionel Bonnemère and Gustave de Clomadeuc .

apparented to the theme of " gougad - patereu " in Morbihan , Brittany , France .

In 1999/2000 when I was arranging beads to be placed into the Bead Timeline for the Bead Museum DC, specimens were mostly single or small groups. But sometimes I created small arrangements to give an impression of how ensembles of beads may have appeared. In one instance, I placed an entire necklace—because I regarded it as an impressive and important piece.

This was from the collection of James Lankton, who did not know its identity nor purpose—though I recognized it from the writings of Horace Beck. Here's a photo of this Gougad-Pateraenneu; that you can also see in Lankton's book about the ancient portion of the Timeline exhibit, A Bead Timeline, Vol. I: Prehistory to 1200 CE (2003).

There was also an informative monograph by Howard and Marie-José Opper: "Gougad-Pateraenneu: Old Talisman Necklaces from Brittany, France." The Bead Society of Greater Washington Monograph Series 1. 1993.

thank you again !

a couple of years ago , I was told ( on the net ) of the existence of the work of Mrs and Mr Opper , but never had the opportunity of reading them .I think it's quite done , as Mrs Opper wrote me today and invited me to contact her

I really like what you write about this ensembles you created and the gougad patereu .

I am trying to send pictures of the inside of the truncated hole , where I really see the traces of drilling
