Hello again,

Along with the Blaan tabih in the prior post, I was also fortunate enough to acquire this lovely albong takmon. This Blaan piece is decorated with mother of pearl beads. Such a beautiful piece and heavier than you'd think. Enjoy.

....indeed, a 'pearl' for your collection! (Sorry! :)

What a beautiful jacket!! How lovely it would look as the light - say candle-light or fire-light could the individual pieces of mother of pearl. I can well imagine that it is heavy as the surface is simply smothered in the mother of pearl 'sequins'.

A beautiful piece, do you know how old it is?

Hello,

I can't be sure of the age. I'm guessing early 20th century. I would love to hear opinions from anyone who may be reading.

As a note, it was found along with the Blaan tabih which is shown in a nearby separate thread.

Best,
Craig
