Antique Whitehearts & White Glass
This is a very cool 34 inch strand of larger whither beads, Venetian 1800's with an equally old white glass bead in-between each. These beads are approximately size 5º, and are 7mm x 7mm. There are 180 beads on the strand. I believe these were traded here in North America, and came to me from the collection of Libby Gregory, the founder of Byzantium, the fabulous bead store in Columbus, Ohio, now closed. Rare size, highly collectible!
