Vintage Mardi Gras Necklace,patriotic Red,silver Oval Bead Mercury Glass Garland:
This is a necklace from my grandmother's collection of New Orleans Mardi Gras memorabilia. Before she passed 20 years ago, Miss Alberta was a member of Venus and rode on the float for decades even into her 80's .
- This would also make a great feather tree garland.
- Made of antique Japanese glass beads. I have several of these up for sale - each is as unique as the other.
- This particular necklace does not have the original paper Japan tag but I have personal knowledge of its history.
- Silver ribbed tubes are 5/8" long
- Round silver and round cobalt blue beads are 1/4" in diameter
- Faceted red beads are 5/8" in diameter with a little paint loss
- Approximate length is 25".
- Strung on original cotton with no clasp in good vintage condition.
- Vintage condition as shown in the pictures
My grandmother's collection dates from the early 1900's. I have Mardi Gras items from my greatgrandparents era around 1908.
