Admire this beautiful, EXTRA LONG strand of antique Venetian trade beads! Venetian glass beads such as these were made throughout the 19th and 20th century primarily for export to Africa. Today they are found in many countries including Ivory Coast, Nigeria, and Ghana where they are also known by their Ashanti name “Chachasao”. Most beads are commonly cylindrical in shape but other varieties exist including rectangular, oval, and sometimes even hexagonal beads. The strand pictured is an authentic strand of African Trade Beads. This is an old strand and some beads may be damaged or chipped due to age. Great for the bead connoisseur and amateur collector alike. These unusual beads may be worn “as-is” or may be used as a unique addition to your special beaded jewelry. Don’t miss this chance to own one-of-a-kind strand today! Strand pictured is a sample. Yours will be very similar.
