These wonderful nailheads have not been produced since the beginning of the 1900s.
Nailheads beads are pressed glass, faceted sequin embellishments That were sewn on to clothing to add flare during the 19th century. Queen Victoria started an international fashion for using them as embellishments for mourning dresses. That is why so many are found in darker colors. They were used in fashions until the end of the 1920s.
They have recently had a huge revival and are highly in demand. THESE BEAUTIES ARE HIGHLY COLLECTIBLE AND WOULD BE A GREAT ADDITION TO ANY COLLECTION.

I acquired these along with many other nailheads from the granddaughter of a famous hat designer in the Roaring 20s.
I feel so blessed to have them and am happy to share with others.
Please check my store for other antique and vintage beads. Thank you for looking and please convo me if you are looking for something particular. I have so many antique and vintage beads, it will take me weeks to list them all.
