A strand of these gorgeous drawn Venetian glass striped beads, emulating the Chevron style.
These beads are worked with a base of brick brown/red opaque glass, lined with fine stripes of black and white. The resulting beads are formed into crude olive shapes.
The beads are in very good condition for their age and delicacy although the occasional nibble here and there is to be expected.
They measure on average 15 x 5 mm. The strand measures around 60cm and contains 44 beads
