Seller: venetianbeads.perleavenezia (43) 100%, Location: Venezia, Ships to: Worldwide, Item: 281928022935 Modern mount bracelet, made using antique Murano glass beads. These beads, so called "striped", (born as poor imitation of the most famous chevron, or rosetta, beads) could be dated to the end of 19th/beginning of 20th century. Please note that the dark red colour, known as "rosso coppo", is the same used for the red layer of the oldest chevron.To be noted, also, the wear due to the use, that has almost worn out the thin blue lines. They were manufactured in Murano expressly for the trade with Africa, see "Collectible Beads", by Robert K. Liu, or "The History of Beads" by Lois Sherr Dubin. Particularly see the seventh volume dedicated to the "Chevron and Nueva Cadiz Beads" by John and Ruth Picard, of Picard African Imports. The size of the beads is approx. 12mm. long, and the diameter is 5/6mm. (18 beads). Condition: Excellent condition., Material: Glass , Provenance: Murano-Venezia-Italia
