Group of 3 nice White Heart Type Glass Fur Trade Bead examples from the Columbia River.
These were traded during the Fur Trade (Circa Early 1750-1850) by companies such as The Hudson Bay, North West Company and the American Fur Trade Company.
The specific beads in this group were all part of the Ralph Groom Collection. He collected in the 1950’s and early 1960’s along the Columbia River that runs thru Washington, Oregon and British Columbia Canada.
Great for education, study, and display.
BC Artifacts Ltd. legally obtained some of this collection in 2005 thru Mark Berreth of Kennewick Washington.
