Gorgeous old mercury glass bead garland strand in a hard to find color - rich, deep cobalt blue. The garland measures 94 inches long (beads only, not excess string), just 2 inches shy of 8 feet. The single small beads are about 1/4 inches diameter. The coloring has some minor variation in shading as is common with old mercury silvered glass but there is no flaking or scratching to the finish. I noted only one chipped bead. The strand has wired cardboard stoppers at both ends.
