Egyptian, Old Kingdom, 2551–2528 B.C. - This design is believed to have been either sewn onto a linen dress or worked into a separate net worn over the linen. Because of meticulous note taking and photography at the time of their discovery in an undisturbed tomb in Giza, the original position of the beads was recovered, and some of the original stringing preserved. The color of the beads has faded, but the beadnet was originally blue and blue green in imitation of lapis lazuli and turquoise.
