In 1987, when The History of Beads (1st edition) was released, I was in NYC with David Ebbinghouse, and Walt Seifried to attend the festivities, and shop at local companies. We went to Leekan—and I bought quite a few new Chinese millefiori beads—they being primarily yellow or black, with some remarkably large red beads (with very sparse millefiori).
I compared my new black beads with old (bought in Hong Kong) black beads—and they were identical, apart from the surface wear of the old beads. JDA.
