These antique Venetian millefiori beads, also known as mosaic beads, were used in the African trade during the early 1900s. Their intricate design and vibrant colors are a testament to the exceptional glassmaking techniques developed in Venice.

Millefiori, meaning "a thousand flowers" in Italian, is a technique where rods of colored glass (murrine) are fused together and then sliced to create floral patterns. These beads were highly valued in African trade, particularly in Ghana, where they were exchanged for goods and used in traditional ceremonies. The vibrant patterns and historical significance make these beads a cherished addition to any collection.
