These unusual glass beads are a rare cousin to the more common Kakamba Bead. Among the foremost glass makers of the 19-20th centuries, Czech artisans used their prodigious skills and expert craftsmanship to develop many innovative and unique bead designs that were exported by traders throughout Africa. Like the Kakamba bead and other beads in the Prosser family, these beads were likely produced by molding swirled glass. This particular strand was found in Nigeria and the beads show signs of age including chips and small pits. The holes are unusual in that they are smaller on one side than the other. Beads are finished with traditional raffia. Each strand is unique and may vary slightly from photo.
