These beads have all appeared on African trade strands with antique Venetian beads. However, they do not seem to be typical Venetian production. Beads range in diameter from 11 - 14.5 mm. The flattened ends are very uniform, as is the almost 3 mm hole size.
I'm waiting to obtain enough for a necklace - if you spot any for sale anywhere - please let me know!
