Original Message:   Oh yes, they are in the Ft. Ross museum, and also at the California mission
in Carmel, CA. So Father Serra used them to "reward" the Native Americans that were servants there as well. This is San Carlos Borromeo de Carmelo, founded in 1770,so there's a date frame for the old Bohemian "Russian cut" bead production. I remember very well admiring the milky opalescent ones on display there, because I happened to be wearing my strand of the very same bead type purchased from the Picards, from the African trade.
