This page (Group B) is the second of three pages showing the world-wide collection of old trade beads from the Walt Lewin estate. This group illustrates five glass bead necklaces that appear to be from the Old World (JEP 203, 207, 215, 217 and 220), one New World seed bead necklace (JEP 221), one frame of Indian glass beads from an Oklahoma site (JEP 226), an African amber necklace (JEP 219), a necklace of shell beads believed to be from one of the Southwest Indian tribes (JEP 222). Lewin left little information concerning the origin and age of the beads, so we must leave it up to the viewer to recognize those attributes. The photos show a full view of each necklace or group along with a close-up of some 2 or 3 inches of the beads. The text in the first line below the photo shows our inventory number in brackets followed by a general description of the beads. The next line will give any location info left by Lewin. If location information is not known, then that line will state the full length of the necklace in inches around its entire circumference along with the size range of its beads. Next is a note on condition followed by a range of grade (1-10 with 10 being the highest), and finally the price. Select or ask any question by referring first to the Trocadero page number or item number, and then to our Inventory Number shown on the photo. A purchase comes with a biographical sketch about Lewin. NOTE: if you would like to view a large number of our various listings, and at the same time limit your browsing, try our ‘TWELVE different items on a single page format’ by simply spelling out the word TWELVE in the search box. That will quickly bring up all of our listings that have multiple items on one page, each individually priced! And if you want to further refine the group, add one or two additional modifiers at the same time such as ‘Indian, Precolumbian, Stone, Pot, Gold, etc.’ Any item that has been sold will be so noted on its photograph.
