These are Dog Teeth from Papua New Guinea. The Abelam, Boiken and Arapesh Tribes use Dog's Teeth for currency or when buying a bride, compensation and land payment and buying pigs. Dogs Teeth are also an important object of personal adornment communicating wealth and status. Dog teeth, flying fox teeth, crocodile teeth, porpoise teeth, pig's tusks and teeth, all are used for jewelry in New Guinea. Dog teeth were so valuable that during the colonial period the Germans manufactured porcelain dog teeth in Europe and imported them to New Guinea before WW1 for bartering. Strings of dog teeth are part of a family's wealth and are worn for special occasions. These Dogs Teeth, although displayed as a necklace, come packaged in a quantity of ten. The Teeth are not only conversation pieces, but would be wonderful in jewelry and all your creative crafts.
Teeth vary in size 1" to 1 3/4"
