3 Rare Old End-of-the-day Tabular Venetian Trade Beads VB_0452

$46.00 $66.15

This listing is for 3 flat tabular Venetian "End-of-the-day" trade beads. They are frequently so referred to because glassmakers made them at the end of their work day putting together the leftover glass chips and cane together. These are Murrine beads (the Murrine beads are made using glass chips on wound glass core). Another name for these beads is "crumb beads". They date to the late 1800s - early 1900s.

The beads are 22x19x8 mm, 22x19x9 mm, and 25x20x11 mm.  These are old beads, generally in good antique condition.  For old beads like these, minor nicks, chips, and scratches are expected.  Please examine the photos carefully. 

The listing is for the group of 3 beads.

Weights and sizes are approximate.

IMPORTANT NOTE. In the world of beads, and especially ancient and antique beads, errors in identification are common.

COLORS: Our photos are taken in different lighting in an attempt to show how beads look in different lighting conditions. We make every effort to show colors as accurately as possible. The white background photos are taken in daylight conditions. The black background photos are taken in the strong lab light and would be representative of what they would look like in the evening electric light. Some of the photos are backlit to emphasize their translucency. Note that monitor settings strongly affect the way the colors look. What you see on your monitor may differ from what you see with a naked eye depending on your monitor settings.
