These are pretty glass pony beads that are from the early 1900s.
You will receive (70) beads that measure approximately 3mm - 4mm in size. These are old beads. I have not cleaned them and will leave this up to the new owner. They are in excellent condition.
Trade beads are true to their name. They were an important part of currency used in trade between Africans and Europeans. The Europeans loaded their ships with beads and "trinkets", among them these beads, and traded them in Africa for gold, coffee and natural resources.
Thanks for shopping with me!
Thanks very much! Love the beads!
