White faience beads segmented with horizontal flat shell spacers. Restrund in modern times. Jewellery with such spacers were a particular trait of the Pan Grave culture. Probably from Abydos. The object was gifted to the University of Wales, Aberystwyth by John Bancroft Willans, a subscriber of the Egypt Exploration Fund/Society, who received the object in 1903. Subsequently gifted to the Egypt Centre in 1997.
