Thank you. Hi John- had no clue first pic from collection/exhibit. Awesome bead- one of the prettiest too in the dark teal color.
Similar but much rougher and hand faceted small Venetian chevron. Also has brick red and yellow outer striping. and a green teal layer (not the teal), white core. From the African Trade.
Also this type bead, as you know, listed at Fort Vancouver, WA, from the Hudson Bay Company- see bead pic. Plate 1 "V". (1829-1860).
