A Happy easter to everyone! Here is a photo of some fake aged phenolic resin beads. These carved African beads originally made in Europe are a kind of Bakelite traded particularly to Mauritania in the early to mid 20th C. and carved there. The carved beads have become rare and I found these in Marakesh but they are suspiciously newly carved and offered at a huge price. Interesting how the market creates products..
