I suspect the "18th C." is much too early for these beads—though it's possible they may have been made for an extended period (for all I know). But it should be considered that these beads usually come in groups of four because they were used as weights in the corners of square table cloths. They are not "spindle whorls." JDA.

P.S. I think the price (not including shipping) was too high. It is not as though these are rare desirable beads. Their niche-value is limited. But sellers at eBay usually want a higher price than is warranted.
