These glass beads light-bulb shaped beads were made during the 19th and early 20th century in Bohemia for the African trade. They imitated indigenous stone bead shapes. They come in a great variety of colors and patterns some "agate" styles imitate stones. African bead traders have reported that they are called wedding beads because the drummers at weddings in Mali traditionally wear these beads. Triangular, tabular and claw shapes are sometimes mixed in with light-bulb shapes on these strands. Newer, smaller light-bulbs have a shinier surface showing less age and wear.

Holes are smooth, but the beads are quite heavy, so string on cable wires.

Each strand is about 26" long and contains approximately 75 beads. Beads are approximately 25mm long, 10mm at the top, and 15mm at the "bulb."
