Vintage 1950's - 1960's Italian Venetian Red Millefiori Glass Tube Bead Long Opera Length Necklace.
Gorgeous necklace comprised of large millefiori glass tube shape beads in a luscious shade of red....spattered with multi color canes within that create a very dynamic effect. Each millefiori red glass tube bead is individual.....no two are alike....displaying a unique pattern within. The millefiori tube beads are interspersed with red glass beads and fluted metal spacer beads. Very hefty and substantial piece. Strung on fine original wire and finished with a filigree clasp.
Necklace is unsigned. Italian in origin.
Necklace measures 34 inches in length (long opera length). Red millefiori tube beads measure approximately (each is slightly different) 1 inch long by 7/16 inch wide.
Metal spacer beads show a little finish aging. Vintage condition is otherwise very good. Ravishing!
