These cobalt blue glass beads are Dutch and were made in Holland between 1500-1800AD. | They were made by winding molten glass on a hot mandrel until the desired size was achieved. | They were then traded into Africa, specifically with the Dogon tribe in Mali. Because of this they are often called "Dogon glass" despite the fact they were produced elsewhere.
