Ancient Roman Bead. Kate's Private Collection
If you want to own something really ancient, here it is. this lamp work glass bead came to me many years ago through an Afghani Antiquities dealer. The beads were obtained through Abdul Weiss, a famous and wonderful man from Afghanistan and a friend for at least 30 years. I had to knock the dust out of this ancient treasure and Abdul used to joke that I liked to snort history the way some snort snuff because indeed I loved the smell of that historical dust! Abdul has gone on to his Maker and I miss him.
