Earrings African Trade Beads Rare


"Finding such small and old trade beads is what I love to do. These were probably made some time in the 1800s, although they could also have been made in the 1900s. All I can say is that these are rare and collectable. All real trade beads are becoming more difficult to find as the numbers of collectors grow. These earrings are small (compare them to the dime) and the beads are set in Sterling silver including the little hand made ones in the middle and they are set on Sterling French Hooks."
