These beads could be dated to the end of 19th century or the early 20th century. 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 sixth and seventh volumes dedicated to the "Millefiori Beads from Western African Trade" and to the "Chevron and Nueva Cadiz Beads" by John and Ruth Picard, of Picard African Imports. (Take a look also at the other five because this string include a lot of different kinds of beads) The "trade" (started in the late 1400s) best period was from the mid 1800s until 1939 (start of WWII). During almost a century many millions of glass beads were produced in Europe and traded in Africa.In the late 1960s they began to come back to Europe (and mostly to the States, where it developed the habit to give them a name, like "french ambassador", "end of the day", "Lewis and Clarke", and many more) The beads are in good condition, they have minor wear commensurate to the age, please look carefully to our pics. The size of the beads is: a length of 15mm., a width of 13mm. and a thickness of 6mm. (8 beads) Condition: Excellent condition., Material: Glass , Provenance: Murano-Venezia-Italia
