We shall be away in West Africa until the end of April, but customers are welcome to send in their Order Enquiries which we will answer and, if required, put the items On Hold for you until our return to the UK.
We will then send out the full details of your enquiries to you.
As usual our Product Index page is where to find links to all our items which include rare ancient Roman and Islamic glass and genuine examples of many types of historic beads which have been traded in exchange for goods throughout Africa since the days of the early overland and sailing ship traders.
In addition, to help customers with bead identification for now and the future,
we have 130 Reference Pages in the Pictures of Collections section,
showing pictures of many of the Sold items we have removed from the main site.
There are also plenty of very interesting beads on our Asian Trade Beads Website which continues to offer a wide selection of inexpensive but attractive modern items and many excellent quality reproductions of ancient beads.
Specifically available in small quantities for hobbyists and jewellery-makers who want something different, without having to buy the large minimum quantities often demanded by manufacturers. Now offered at even more reasonable prices !!
I look forward to hearing from you .... but please remember that many of our items are “One-Offs” and as always it is First Come First Served.
So please don’t delay if you want to grab a bargain or two or three or ..… !!
All the Very Best
