These old prayer beads are also called 'worry beads' but we like to think of them as 'don't worry' beads because they help calm the stresses of life. These are made of solid genuine Bakelite. It's a swirl of butterscotch and toffee colors. Maybe even some real amber in the mix which was one way they would make these beads.
There are 19 oval beads, each measuring about 18mm by 14mm. The base bead measures 1 1/8 inches by 5/8 inch.
The flurry of tassel is about 5 1/2 inches long. Looks like someone wrapped a strip of metal around it to keep it under control.
The entire piece measures about 18 inches long. Weighs 79.8 grams.
The opening is a bit too small to put over the head.
Beads are in excellent vintage condition.
