Shell Wealth Belt Mortlock Island Micronesia
This finely made shell belt is from Mortlock Island in the Federated States of Micronesia, each shell is pierced so that the can be tied to the belt . the shells stand up in a row that give it a unique look. I have seen these made with a few different types of shells but they all stand up in tight rows. Circa 1950s or earlier
