Lot of four Venetian glass tubular trade beads. Box 4-1/4" x 3-1/4", beads 3/4" to 1" long. The inbound early wrecks in the Caribbean (as well as some land sites) tend to be littered with these beads, which were generally traded to the natives and therefore were a sort of money, this group consisting of cylinders of blue, green and red. From the "Pewter wreck" (mid-1500s), housed in Riker box, with photo-certificate from the salvagers.
