This is a very nice very rare strand of antique Venetian French beads in white with blue from the African trade. This is a well matched strand of glass trade beads. These beads are in very good overall condition despite their age, there is some chipping and pitting which may be expected in well traveled beads, commonly used for trading purposes in Africa during the late 1800s and the early 1900s. On this 24 inch long strand there are 50 beads ranging from 3/8 inches to 1/2 inches long including 5 beads that are broken in half. Strung on the original raffia cording.
