Splendid necklace made with Green Trade Beads from Mali

Ref: KTOU04

Beautiful Mali Glass beaded necklace in green decorated beads with a white spiral.

Since the sixteenth century, ships bound for Africa and the Americas were supplied with huge quantities of beads like these: on the outward voyage, they were ballast and on their arrival they were used to barter spices, fabrics, precious metals and even slaves.

A currency that worked on most borders.  Many were Venetian, including chevron and millefiori crystal beads.

These beads are now considered collector’s items.
