A strand of 22 Venetian African Trade Beads Black Striped Fancy Beads VB_00222_C


A 15" strand of 22 black "fancy" striped Venetian beads dating to the late 1800s - early 1900s. 

The beads range from about 7x9mm to 19xmm, with about 3mm holes. Weights and sizes are approximate.

These beads are mostly in fair antique condition, with a few beads in a worse state than others with substantial chips at the edges.  These beads have traveled far and wide, and substantial wear such as nicks, scratches, and chips is expected. Please examine the photos carefully for details.

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. We also accept returns no questions asked. See our Return Policy for details.

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 the naked eye depending on your monitor settings.
