Dutch Delft (Dabwa) Venetian trade beads mostly blue and white beads with some red and white (16mm x 8mm), 16.5 inch long necklace. These are wound and decorated beads made in Venice in the late 1800s to early 1900s. The overall condition is poor to fair. Most beads are corroded an pitted. One bead has been repaired. These beads have been traded across at least three continents and graced many owners. Their patina attests to their age and use and typically includes some end chips, pitting and corrosion. Finally, the beads have been strung together using a laborious and intricate macrame technique.

To have survived to the present, these beads have been cherished by their previous owners. To best care for this necklace, it is recommended that you store it flat and separate from other jewelry to reduce the chance of damage to your beads. We hope you enjoy and treasure your necklace as much as its previous owners have!
