This vintage glass bead chain is comprised of beautiful ivory flattened oval glass pearl beads linked together rosary style with brass wires. The glass beads measure 15mm long but do vary a bit in size and shape since they were made by hand in Japan decades ago. They have a dimpled baroque style presentation. I would say they are an oyster ivory, with a touch of grey. These glass pearls show their age, please see my note below. The brass linking wires show patina due to age. You will receive 1 foot.

Please Note: These are old, old glass pearls in which the coating is worn, and completely gone in spots. There is milky translucent glass under the pearl coating. The wires are darkened with age. You may want to wipe these old glass pearls gently with a slightly damp, very soft cloth to remove some of the dust and time-related patina, or you may want to keep them just as they are for an authentic time worn look. If you like and want this sort of appearance, these unique and special old pearls may work well in your designs.

An idea for you to try: Sealing these pearls is a way of preserving them and preventing further aging. This may be an option for you if you like the aged look of these pearls, and want them to remain in their current state. For a tutorial on how to seal vintage glass pearls, see my blog post here:
