This absolutely unusual one-of-a-kind dated 1832 black and white intricately-woven beaded necklace has the phrase "and how great the virtue and the art to live on little with a cheerful heart". Unfortunately, it is missing a few words at the beginning, but who cares - it's one of the most fabulous pieces I've ever owned. It has all of the Victorian symbols of the time - anchor, cross, heart, diamond, and key, along with maybe a cat or dog. This incredible 40 inch long and 1/4 inch wide one hundred and eighty-one year old heirloom is something that should be shared with your family and passed down to your children for generations to come.
Naturally eco-friendly and green, antiques are the ultimate in helping the environment.
This special gem is part of our personal collection that has been stashed away for more than 30 years, and we are now ready to share with the world.
We offer lay-a-way, so shop away.
