Rare antique trade bead earrings

Rare antique trade bead earrings

These beads date from between the 1880s and 1920s and were made in Venice for export to Africa where they were used as currency.

They are in excellent condition for such old beads, but they are much-travelled and so show some damage to the ends, which is not visible when they are being worn.

They have been put together with Ethiopian brass beads and some matching red glass beads.

These earrings are something very special and you won't see another pair like them.

I usually post within 24 hours but 48 hours maximum.

They will be sent in a presentation box. Packaging is all recycled or recyclable.


These old Venetian glass beads have travelled to Africa and back so I decided they would like some Ethiopian brass beads to remind them of sunshine. I think they work well together.
