A strand of Antique Bohemian Crystal Clear Mostly Oval African Trade Beads


On offer are strands of delicate crystal-clear antique Bohemian glass African Trade beads. Each strand is approximately 34" with raffia, about 28" of beads.

The beads range from 5 to 11 mm in diameter in color, the hole is about 1mm. Most of the beads are oval-shaped, although there is an occasional rounded cube, tube, and even faceted bicone bead present.

The beads are transparent, but display a beautiful color play depending on the lighting, sometimes with a tint of gold, sometimes pink. The photos are taken in different lighting conditions to show that variability.

The beads are old and may have age-appropriate imperfections such as scratches, chips, and nicks.

The listing is for one strand. Multiple strands are shown in several photos.

Weights and sizes are approximate.

IMPORTANT NOTE. In the world of beads, and especially ancient and antique beads, errors in identification are common. We do our best to research and classify our beads accurately, however, mistakes are certainly possible. If you are a bead expert and notice any errors in the description, we invite you to please contact us and let us know. We are always grateful for any new information.

COLORS: Our photos are taken in different lighting in an attempt to show how beads look in different lighting conditions. We make every effort to show colors as accurately as possible. The white background photos are taken in daylight conditions. The black background photos are taken in the strong lab light, and would be representative of what they would look like in the evening electric light. Some of the photos are backlit to emphasize their translucency. Note that monitor settings strongly affect the way the colors look. What you see on your monitor may differ from what you see with a naked eye depending on your monitor settings.
