item 9035 This is a string of 7 hand made antique Venetian glass cased glass eye beads or so called priest beads made in Venice, Italy 1840-1860s. The beads are of red and white cased glass with mavered applique or applied white spots and each measure approximately 14mm in diameter. The beads are called eye beads or priest beads and were popular trade beads of the 19th century. The beads are on a fiber rope knotted on each end. I also have individual beads as well. The beads have slight variations in color and size as they are totally hand made and very difficult to find.
