Up for your consideration is a very nice old Maori pendant. Please view the pictures to see just how well it stacks up against other early Maori taonga.

Length: ~11cm - Very large for this style.

This pendant is made from extremely good quality greenstone, such quality one rarely sees in either new or old pieces. This is what has me a little confused - It has all the telltale signs of being early (hour-glass hole, good polish, well balanced, good pounamu quality - also when you run your fingers around it you can feel the scarf marks) but, I've only seen a handful of early pieces with the Marsden flower as this one appears to have at the suspension hole. As thus, I will list it as "age unknown". However, the previous owner did have it checked by Tepapa who concluded it was early and Y registered it.

Please be aware that it is only the pendant seen on its own that is for sale in this auction - All other pieces are in my private collection.

As per usual - Registered collectors only. Please read the questions and answers for this listing.
