Antique 19th Century Wound Venetian White Glass Bead Necklace

A string of some of the oldest Venetian glass beads I have handled. The beads feature delicate wound glass canes with curved edges from being hand blown. The edges of the beads push together to make a wonderful shape.
They are incredibly light weight and show a transparency when held up to the light.

The beads remain on their original white silk thread. I believe they could have been worn for a wedding but remain unsure.

- There are some very tiny cracks to a couple of the beads. There is some light crazing to the surface of the beads and some very tiny gaps that will have happened during manufacture. For its age the necklace is in wonderful condition.

Length - 17.5 inches
Width of beads - 1.5 cm (roughly)
Date - 1880 - 1900s
