Shipped by tracked letter post.
Barter beads made using the Prosser "cold cameo" technique, originated by the English brothers Richard and Thomas Prosser in 1840, with the aim of making porcelain buttons. Realising the Prosser technique could be used for beads, Jean-Felix Bapterosses, French button maker and bead collector, bought the rights to the technique in the 1850s. He began to produce pressed beads on a large scale in his factory in Briare in France, to be used as currency by Europeans traders. They were very successful in the city of Kakamba in the Republic of Congo, hence the name Kakamba Prosser Beads.

    Hoewel ze er op de foto uitzagen als collier waren het eigenlijk kralensnoeren, niet om te dragen. Zowel Ogomo als Catawiki hebben het goed met mij afgehandeld, ik heb de snoeren kunnen omruilen.
