The individual stem is in the shape of a small flower, made of mercury glass beads....and to think each bead was strung on wire to create the flower shape, then the wire stem wrapped in paper to create the stem....all done by hand. These wonderful Holiday decorations are old store stock, never used or displayed, from the estate of a craft and Holiday designer, dating back to the 1940's. Decorations such as these would have been made in Japan after WW II. Imports into the US then began in the late 1940's, into the 1950's. This beautiful set of twelve ornaments, Holiday picks, is in very good vintage condition, as shown in the photos. Each glass bead flower and stem measures about 5" long. The twelve stems that you purchase will still be bundled together, some bunches still having the, "MADE IN JAPAN", paper sticker still attached.
