Murano pearl necklace (N° 21109)

Necklace made of ancient pearls that were once used as currency. The beads of this type (Millefiori), made of glass paste, would come from Venice (Murano) in particular, but also from other European countries such as Czechoslovakia. As early as the 14th century, they were exchanged in the African continent for various goods: gold, ivory, etc... Jewelry, such as necklaces, could also be part of the dowry.
