About African Trade Beads: Collectors of African Trade beads categorize them by the region in which they were found or where they were most commonly worn.

This may not always be where they were made, however. Many glass trade beads that were made in Europe are now almost exclusively associated with African Regions.

For example, the colorful tube-shaped Millefiore Trade Beads are typically identified as African Trade Beads, although most were originally made in Venice during or before the 1800's, finding their way to Africa through decades of trade.

Other glass African Trade Beads originated from Czechoslovakia, Germany, England, or Vienna before finding their was to the cultures and ceremonies of Africa.
