African Trade Beads Faux Coral Rare Graded on Original Strand. Wearable. 28 ins.
These beads were made of glass to emulate coral. they even have slightly roughed up texture to make them more real! I have hd many strands over the years of collecting but this one is particularly special. the beads are graded from small to larger. Wearable indeed and on it's original raffia. The Chinese are collecting all the rare beads they can as investments. So Trade beads are rapidly disappearing alas. The strand is 28 iches and the beads are 24 inches of glass.The largest is 1 1/2 inches long.
