Item details

Ƹ̵̡Ӝ̵̨̄Ʒ Collectible vintage-to-antique glass trade beads, made in Italy (Venice) for the African trade.
Q U A N T I T Y : 1 bead
D I M E N S I O N S : average about 12mm long x about 10mm wide (1/2" x 3/8")

50 to 100 years old, these show the normal wear for beads of their age, with the occasional small pock mark or older chip on the edges. See photos for details.

Classic French Cross style -- the wound core bead is white glass, with striped red, white and blue cane drawn lengthwise and crosswise across the surface.

❧ SO stylish in simple, yoga-themed designs (some of the holes are large enough to accommodate thin leather cord).
❧ Nice lapis lazuli and garnet
❧ Mixes really well with Southwestern gemstone beads too -- coral and turquoise! Si!
