Fantastic set of antique Venetian watermelon chevron beads from the African trade. This is a well matched strand of striped glass trade beads with short round shape. Beads are in very good overall condition despite their age, commonly used for trading purposes in Africa during the late 1800s and the early 1900s. Strung on the original raffia cording which is showing some wear but does not compromise the beauty of the beads in any way. The strand is 22 inches with beads ranging in length from 4-5 mm.
