These old mercury glass Christmas bead sprays are strung on sturdy wire with metallic paper tips. There are two sprays, each with six individual stems or picks ranging from 5-3/4 to 7 inches long from the bottom bead to the paper tip (measured without the wire picks). The coloring is shaded pinks which may originally have been magenta red before age, fading, and silvering deterioration transformed the spikes to the antiqued, variegated pink shading you see now. While I was measuring the beads, one of the paper tips slipped off. It will be included so you can re-apply as you wish.
