From the 15th to the 20th century, traders carried European glass beads across the world. The beads were highly desired by Native Americans as glass was then an unknown substance in North American. European glass beads, mostly from Venice, some from Holland and, later, from Poland and Czechoslovakia, became popular and sought after by Native Americans. Europeans realized early on that beads were important to Native Americans and corporations such as the Hudson Bay Trading Company developed lucrative bead-trading markets with them. The Hudson Bay Trading Company was an organized group of explorers who ventured into the North American continent for trade expeditions during the 19th century.
Most of the beads on this strand measure approximately 0.5" long. Some are smaller and one Yellow Bead is nearly 1" long. The holes measure 3mm - 4mm in diameter.  The strand measures 31" long.
