BEAUTIFUL, FULL STRAND of ORIGINAL, ANTIQUE, STRIPED, VENETIAN ‘GREEN-HEART’ GLASS TRADE BEAD STRAND.
These are GENUINE VENETIAN GLASS TRADE BEADS that were made in Venice, Italy and traded by Europeans traveling throughout Africa during the late 1800’s through the early 1900’s.
MILLEFIORI Trade Beads were exchanged with Africans for slaves, palm oil, gold, ivory and other services. Africans placed intrinsic value on these beautiful, decorative beads and used them as currency and trade among themselves.
