WONDERFUL, VERY UNUSUAL STRAND OF VERY FANCY, LARGE DOUBLE INDENT VINTAGE MERCURY GLASS BEAD CHRISTMAS TREE GARLAND. What beautiful old glass beads. These would be perfect for your Vintage design tree. Very unusual style and design. And to find the double indent beads in this size!! Rich, vibrant coloration, in shades of royal blue and silver. There are four different types of beads on this strand. There are the extra large double indent blue colored beads, extended pikes on each end, that measure about 1" each, large single oblong, barrel tube shaped blue colored beads, that measure about 1" each, large single blue colored beads that measure about 9/16" each, and the single silver colored beads that measure about 7/16" each. Again, a very unusual strand. 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. This lovely strand measures about 85" 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.
