The problem as I see it - if I don't have a similar Venetian bead handy to check against, I'm not sure I can identify every new "Venetian tribute" bead. Venetian beads have so much variation in shape and placement of decoration, etc. that in many cases, as presented here, I would be fooled if I did not have the experience of examining the Indonesian beads.
