Vintage African Trade Beads


Vintage African Trade Beads

Blue & Green Vintage African Trade Beads. These aren’t ready to wear as a necklace, they are strung on some thick string, so would need to be re-strung. They are heavy and have a matt finish and are a similar pattern to millifiori beads. The beads are long tubular beads with large holes.  They are currently long enough to fit over the head to fit onto the neck.

There are different patterns which are repeated in blue, green and white with red, yellow and black markings. They have a matt feel to them like pottery but are glass. I think these may be from the 1920s.

Size: Total length 26″ and the tubular beads are 1.25″ long x 1/2″ in diameter
