  • (60) Antique Venetian/Murano Millefiori Green Glass African Trade Beads

Specifications:

This lot of 60 Venetian Millefiori African Trade Beads is from the late 19th - early 20th century. The beads are in multi-colored glass stripes, watermelons, oviods, etc. designs and mostly black glass centers. They are all approximately 1/2-inch (12-13mm) in diameter, and range in length from 1-1/2-inches (39mm) to just under 0.275-inches (7mm). However, because of the handmade process, the diameter/length of each one varies.
 
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. Millefiori beads of this era are still sought after by collectors worldwide.
