Fish Hook Necklace, Edge-Partington
This collection is an extensive ethnographic collection of approximately 2,500 objects from the Pacific. James Edge-Partington made three trips through the Pacific in the late 19th century and also collected material from private collections in Europe. The Auckland Museum acquired the collection in 1924 from London and the necklace appears to be the only Tobian object in the collection.
