Three sample strands from MD, the one Africa Trader I have found who consistently sells Indonesian and other modern beads as old Venetian. He says these are from Italy, but more recently made. A variation on the "old cane" explanation for why beads from Africa are too new looking, but clearly more than cutting a cane involved in making these. The large "French Cross" he had in many colors. My sense was he would take $50 for the Face and Fr. Ambassador. Anyone know where / when these were made?
