Vintage ivory white mother of pearl button beads which make wonderful spacer beads. I loved these unusual mother of pearl beads when I found them in London in 1979 during one of our very first European buying trips! We found them in the antique district on Portobello Road and we were told these beads were from the 1950's.
They're 10mm x 3 1/2mm and make uniquel 'spacer' beads when used in earrings, bracelets or even necklaces. They have always reminded me of the mother of pearl buttons that were so popular during the 1940's.
The sheen and iridescence on these beads is superb- others may sell beads that they label as mother of pearl (shell) but are instead an iridescent man made glass so be sure of what you are purchasing.

Price is for 10 of these lovely and unusual beads and I 100% guarantee that these beads are vintage genuine mother of pearl shell beads.

I sold many of these mother of pearl beads through the Smithsonian Institution's museum shop and mail order catalog during the 1980's and they were also featured in trunk shows at Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue during this same time period.
