WONDERFUL RETIRED CHRISTOPHER RADKO, GLASS BEAD TRAIN DESIGN CHRISTMAS TREE GARLAND. What beautiful glass beads. Christopher Radko began designing and producing fine glass Christmas decorations in 1986. For more than 25 years, he worked closely with the best glass blowers in Germany, Poland, Italy and the Czech Republic, to bring us the finest quality Christmas ornaments and garlands. The company was sold, and he is no longer involved with the production of Holiday decorations. This lovely strand features individual, blown glass beads in the shape of a train, the locomotive, passenger cars, and round single beads.The locomotive engine measure about 2 5/8", the passenger car beads measure about 2 1/4" each, and the round single beads measure about 3/8"-5/8" each. All produced in the classic vintage European style and design. Rich, vibrant coloration. Exquisite detailing. This lovely strand appears to be unused, never displayed or removed from the box. It measures about 64" long. The garland comes in the original box, marked on the front and side, "CHRISTOPHER RADKO MADE IN CZECH REPUBLIC".
