These Millefiore were acquired at CJS in NYC and were labelled "Made in Spain". Never heard of such a thing? Has anyone? 1) Spain borders Italy 2) Was told by Czech man if packaged in Spain the EU could consider it made in Spain

Otherwise they do not look like Indian glass? Carl at CJS though they did. I did not. I know some mille chips come from Italy but I have heard India has their own chips. I prefer mock Chevron like chips but other than that , how can one tell where a chip has been made. These do look like more modern chips, that I do not doubt. Anyone care to "chip" in?

....is that these are Czech made, with Venetian cane and/or Czech cane.
I have seen quite a few of them in Jablonec.
No idea where the Spanish come into it.....

You have to cut through France or sail across the sea to get there...

I agree that these beads resemble similar beads made in the Czech Republic, and made using Venetian murrine (cane pieces). See also past discussions here, concerning the use of Venetian murrine by Indian beadmakers, versus the Indian use of Indian-made murrine.

There is no such word as "millefiore."

In international commerce, it is common for an imported product to be repackaged, and then ID'd as being "from that country." Witness Bohemian faceted beads, said to be "Russian" (ca. 185 years ago); or "straw beads" (long drawn curtain beads from the early 20th C. + or -), variously ID'd as "Chinese," "Japanese," or "Czech." In recent years: "Made in Pakistan"—but made by Afghan refugees, and of Afghan traditions. All this misidentification is still different from actual misrepresentation—that is rampant.
