These Venetian wound glass trade beads, made in the early 1900s, were primarily used in the African trade. Their unique design and excellent condition make them a valuable addition to any collection.

Lampwork beads, also known as wound glass beads, are created using a meticulous process where glass is wound around a mandrel and shaped with the help of a flame. This technique, perfected in Venice, Italy, produces beads with intricate patterns and vibrant colors. Venetian trade beads have played a significant role in the history of trade in Ghana and across Africa, often used as currency and symbols of wealth.
