    I found these beads among some of my mom's stuff. She once said they were of value; maybe Native American? Perhaps from Jamestown because she has some other NA items from that area?

      These look to be Venetian drawn glass beads, very old, maybe 19th century? jmho, I’m not an expert.

      Sorry I just noticed there are 2 photos. I was referring to the striped beads and not the blue/ black beads. The darker set I’m not sure of, although thy both could be Venetian trade beads... Here’s a great bead site for ancient and rare beads >
