Made in China for trade throughout Asia, Africa and the Americas c. 1600-1800's.
A beautiful 24 inch strand of white, antique, padre beads purchased from my African Antiques dealer friend. Padre beads were taken on mission trips to gift the natives. Typically pastors, priests, or holy men were know to give these out so they were termed Padre- father- beads. These are naturally aged and have much character!
Beads typically measure 6.5-7mm x 9mm, 3mm hole
