This item stands out for its unique and beautiful beading. It has five segments. The first is purely decorative filigree; the second says
IRAQ with a scene of a marsh home; the third and central piece shows Ctesiphon in an oval; the fourth piece says
1943 and shows boats sailing, likely on the Tigris; and the last is also purely decorative. The shapes are interesting, with widening rectangles (or trapezoids) flanking a lovely undulating oval.
