First image - The pink tabulars in the first strand on the left and the white and black tabulars in the sixth strand from the left are more examples of what I consider "Wedding Cake" beads.

Second image - With the exception of a few beads, all others on this strand are "Wedding Cakes"

Examples I have shown are of older Venetian beads from the African Trade that fall in the time range of 1850-1920. "Wedding Cake" beads are still being made today in Venice and India.
