Vintage Pastel ITALIAN MILLEFIORI Glass Bead Necklace
Welcome to ROBINS NEST MIDWEST! May I offer….
AGE: C.1960 or so
ITEM: Oh boy, Art really found a beauty this time! I don't think I have ever seen such pretty glass millefiori (thousand flowers) beads before! In pastel coloring, the beads are a combination of lengthy, elongated ovals, rounds and one big diamond shaped bead at the center. At the ends and added between the beads are pale lavender glass rounds. Findings are gold colored with a fish hook clasp closure - the holder set with white rhinestones.
CONDITION: Very nice with no problems I can spot but to be on the safe side, a restringing is probably in order somewhere down the road.
SIZE: Length of the necklace is about 24". Long tubular beads measure 1-1/2" x 7/16"; rounds are 13mm and 16mm; the diamond shaped bead measures 1-1/16" x 11/16". The clear amethyst-colored beads are 6.5mm.
FINAL COMMENTS: Lovely!
