Original Message:   large striped beads
Recentlty got a strand of these large striped drawn beads, They were dug around Takoradi on the Ghana coast. It is a common color pattern seen on various Venetian sample card in smaller sizes from ~1mm to ~10mm. They are also on the “beads traded for palm oil ” card in the British Museum. T But these large sizes intrigues me, we have seen a couple beads occasionally but seeing suddenly a full strand is surprising. I wonder if they are Venetian or from other part of Europe. Any idea? Showing picture of that strand and a bead from our Museum with another counterpart color combination. Size 19 x 17mm and 22 x 14mm JP
