This has been Bugging Me Badly. Way back- like 25 years ago you could buy Yards of Cotton Fabric that had Millefiori African Trade Beads printed on it! I sure wish I had bought some at the time. It actually was really cool looking, and good detail, as I recall. It came in several different color mixes-
Maybe I should look in the Back of some Old issues of Ornament?
Gotta be so Obscure by now...I don't hold much hope of finding any.
Maybe just confirmation that it existed would placate me for awhile.
