Skunk Beads African Trade Very Collectable 18th Century


I have been collecting beads for 40 years. These skunk beads have become treasures for the discerning collector. Made in Venice they are becoming sought after and yes, they are a bit magical. I have found, when sorting mine to sell these days, that the age is not only revealed by the positioning and color of the dots, but also the holes in the beads. They come in different sizes and in this way I can discern more about their ages. I can see just a tiny bit of blue here and there in these...the holes are fairly large. So yes, these are very old, And so much character... Just consider their adventures! Now they can come and live with you..
