These well shaped tiny antique seed beads date to the early 1900's. They were made in Italy and measure approximately 1.75mm wide & look to be about the equivalent of at least a size 14˚ seed bead (or a little smaller). There is a mm gauge in the photo for size reference. The bead is clean white glass with grass green stripes. They are almost round but not quite and are well made & in good condition. These tiny trade beads came out of West Africa and were most likely used in decorative bead work or jewelry. This is a very pretty color combination & the beads are really quite well formed. This lot measures approximately 36" (just over 91 cm.) in length and you will receive the beads shown or a strand that is just like it. Fabulous collectible beads that will add charming old world flavor and authenticity to your designs.

These old striped ones look like tiny little trade beads. If you repair old beaded pieces, recreate antique bead work or just like to collect old & unique Venetian beads then you will enjoy these. We have been sorting through our large collection of antique seed beads & look forward to listing more of them in our shop. In addition to the multi-strand belts / necklaces we have these smaller lengths of unusual stripe combinations and hard to find colors & sizes.
