These Venetian Millefiori mosaic glass trade beads were used in the African trade during the early 1900s. Each bead showcases the intricate artistry and vibrant colors characteristic of the millefiori technique, a testament to the high craftsmanship of Venetian glassmakers.

The term "millefiori" translates to "a thousand flowers" in Italian, highlighting the detailed floral patterns created by fusing multiple layers of colored glass. These beads were highly prized and extensively traded across Ghana and other parts of Africa, serving not just as decorative items but also as a form of currency and a symbol of wealth and status.
