Vintage Galalith graduated bead necklace.Vintage Galalith graduated bead necklace.

An 18 inch long necklace of graduated coral color beads that range from 5.5 mm at the back to 13.5 in the front. The Galalith, an early casein based plastic,is very light in weight and I am fascinated by the fact they went to the trouble to make the beads in slightly different colors giving a more natural appearance! I also wonder if the colors were originally brighter and have Lightened with age. I have verified with hot water test. Original stringing. Ruby Lane has a wonderful article "Galalith is Not “French Bakelite” if you want to know more about this early plastic. Shipping is $2.75 2 week return
