WONDERFUL, UNUSUAL STRAND OF VINTAGE MERCURY GLASS BEAD CHRISTMAS TREE GARLAND. What beautiful old glass beads. They would be perfect for your Vintage inspired tree. Rich, vibrant coloration in shades of red, forest green, gold, pink, royal blue and silver. There are two different size beads on this strand. There are the extra large multi colored, double tube shaped beads that measure about 7/8" each, and the extra large size single silver beads, that measure about 5/8" each. A very unusual style and design. The beads are all in very good vintage condition, as shown in the photos. We have tried to remove any damaged or broken beads, so they are ready to be used and enjoyed. The strand measures about 70" long, has a cardboard circle and a metal twist tie at each end. Each glass bead was hand blown in countries such as Germany, Czechoslovakia or Japan after WW II. Imports into the U.S. then began in the late 1940's, into the 1950's. Many Czech beads can be much earlier, dating pre-war. For more information and history on vintage Christmas items, visit The Golden Glow of Christmas Past web site.
