Great strand of really unusual King Beads, made in Venice and traded throughout West Africa, particularly Ghana. These glass bicones are a particularly unusual color and really a nice size. Most of the beads are in good-to-excellent condition, with a few (especially in the middle) showing extensive wear. Most of the beads in the middle and top of the strand are actually in pretty decent condition, though most show at least minor wear. Several of the beads have a nice light pink ring around the bottom, which is quite different.
The strand measures 32 inches, plus approximately two inches of raffia cord. The center bead measures 18 mm in diameter, while the smaller beads are 14 mm in diameter.
