Have been collecting Chinese souvenir brass canisters with Boshan glass finials, recently bought one with a murky yellow ochre bead.

And then, weeks later, this string of (ugly!) old 10mm glass beads appeared on eBay - apart from their overall style, I guessed they were Chinese mainly because of the double knots that the Chinese like to use.

And was surprised when they arrived and appear to match the old canister finial exactly.
So there's "provenance" for ya, I guess ;^)
