Old Venetian Chevron Bead from the 1600s
Antique Venetian 7-layer Chevron bead from the 1600s; 22mm long x 25mm diameter with translucent aqua core! So very cool! Over 400 years old! Nice example of a Venetian bead that was altered in Africa and has been worn continually as part of a large necklace for hundreds of years.
