  • (125) Antique Venetian/Murano Millefiori Glass African Trade Beads - Mixed


This mixed lot of 125 Antique Millefiori African Trade Beads is from the late 19th - early 20th century. They are in a variety of bright multi-colored solid glass (watermelons, stripes, ovoid patterns, etc.) and the majority have black centers (see 2nd photo). The beads range in length from approx. 1-3/4-inch (44mm) to .25-inch (6.5mm), and range in diameter from .375-inch (9.5mm) to 1/2-inch (12.5mm). Although because of the handmade process, the diameter of each one varies slightly.
Doug Deal Factoid - Dutch traders were the first Europeans to bring Venetian millefiori beads to West Africa in the late 1400s. The beads were held in high regard by several tribes and were often used as a form of currency.
