Green Chevron Trade Beads Mix (I) - Sold 10.16.23
This beautiful old strand of green tube chevron trade beads with some really nice aja beads mixed in. The glass was layered in canes, then cut, the design resulting from the layering and revealed on the cut end gave them the names of "Star" or "Rosette" beads. A very popular design and certainly one of the most fascinating of the early trade beads.
Beads are approx. 1/8" to 5/32" in diameter and cover 20" of strand. They are strung in the traditionally manner on raffia with an overall length of approximately 23+"
