11x10mm Tube (25) - Black Crumb - Glass Vintage Replica Trade Beads

$9.00

Measurements:  11mm long x 10mm wide with a 3mm threading hole 

Quantity per pack:  25 beads - chosen at random (beads may vary from the photos as each bead is individual - photo is a guide only).

Origin:  Hand Made in India - We believe this bead to be a reproduction of a Trade Bead.

These beads are on a base of opaque black glass, with 'crumbs' of yellow, black and white.  Often called Venetian Trade Beads, they were made as trading beads to the Americas and Africa.

Bead Shack made a huge bead haul around 2007, and these beads were quite old before that.  The man we purchased them from used to collect large hauls of beads that became available, so who knows how long ago they were made!  Our best guess would be around 1980s.
