Those look to me like a reproduction of a type of bead that was
popular as a trade item with American Indians during the late 1700’s
through the 1800’s. They’re often referred to as "wound glass,"
describing the way in which they were made by winding around a
mandrel. The original beads were, I think, mostly made in France and
Italy; the modern versions are usually Indian.
I have a few large (over 1/2") donut beads in beautiful cobalt blue,
probaby French, from the late 1800’s. They’re easy to come by and not
“The History of Beads,” by Lois Sherr Dubin, would have a much more
detailed (and probably more accurate) overview of these beads, if you
wish to delve further.
All the best,
