Unique Red Ribbed Tube CHRISTMAS Mercury Glass Bead Garland Vintage 1940s 105
Absolutely one of the coolest vintage Christmas items I have laid hands on. I actually have three strands that I will be listing that are all similar in length if you have a large tree. These are so cool!!! Each bead is approximately 1.5″ in length with the total length of this strand being 105″. They were originally silver and then dipped in a red which ran over the ribs in very different ways on each bead. They are definitely mercury glass and tinkle when you touch them. As you can see by looking at the entire length there are a few broken beads. You could remove the pieces from the closest end and take the undamaged ones off, until you get the the damaged ones, remove them and rethread if you prefer. These ornaments are from the 1940s and would have been used on a feather tree. They do have some weight to them all combined but not a ton. Each of the pieces of the garland would have been hand blown, then dipped. What an amazing amount of work in just this strand. The beads are all threaded through a thick string that holds them together. From a really incredible estate with the BEST decor items, lots of antiques. A few select fantastic Christmas items. I will be listing more early vintage Christmas items from this estate as well so be sure to watch. As I mentioned before, I have three of these strings. These are quite rare and in excellent condition minus the few broken beads. With 300 you should have enough to string an entire big tree. I know how to pack very well. I will secure each part of the strand in bubble wrap and layer in between other paper and air bags so you can rest assured they will arrive safely.
