Dating back to the mid-1800’s, these beads are the real deal. Made in Bohemia, before it became the Czech Republic, “Russian Blues” got their name from the popularity of blue trade beads used by Russian fur trappers in the great northwest of Canada and America. Using beads as money for trading wasn’t new…it dates further back than the first Europeans sailing to American shores. As these beads are antique, they will vary in color, shape and facets.
Sold in package of 5 beads.
