#BEADSC0251 - Pair of Large Brass Pat Boone Pendant/Charms
You get both pieces for $2.50. Both are vintage brass. The one piece is diecut into a heart shape and is 1 7/8" tall. On the one side it has Pat's Boone's picture and signature embossed in the brass witha record and a pair of 50s shoes. The reverse says "Always Your Boy" "Pat Boone" which was his trademark saying. The smaller one is about an inch tall and is embossed "Always Your Boy" "Pat Boone" on one side and has a record embossed on the reverse. The brass shows age patina. This was quite the find. They are from the 1950s. They are in excellent unused condition, but show some minor scratches from getting tossed around over the years. Did you know that Pat Boone had 38 top 40 hits mostly in the late 1950s? Elvis is the only artist who charted more hits during that time!

#BEADSC0244 - Copper Plated Windmill Charm with Moving Blades and Charm Loop
Vintage 7/8" tall copper coated steel windmill charm. The blades swivel. These are old store stock from the late 1940s in unused condition. Steel charms with copper plating were mostly made right after WWII when the price of these metals was very cheap. The price escalated rapidly between 1946 and 1950 and almost all of the charm makers went over to plastic. These are U.S. made.

#BEADS0150 - Group of 3 Different Colored Large Rare American Glass Beads/Curtain Pulls from the Civil War Era
(You get 3 for $3 - That's $1 each). Early large heavy wound glass American hand made beads. The sizes are very variable ranging from about an inch to over and inch and a quarter. They are glass that was worked on an iron rod. These have the iron residue up the entire opening which was caused by rods used from about 1840 to 1870. The three different will be green, amber, and cobalt (out of light blue). These handmade glass objects were sold as beads and as curtain pulls, and sold by the peck. They are one of the very earliest forms of American lampwork bead. They light up brilliantly with a lot of light behind them. Here's the crazy story of how we found them. We were out looking for hippie beads at a store in California when we found these packed away with a bunch of old hippie stuff. They told us that grandpa had bought them from a store that exclusively sold vintage American glass that went out of business. He bought them because of the large holes and colors, thinking the hippies would like them! It turns out they are real deal mid 1800s blown glass. This is one of the best find we have ever had.

Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. You get 12 for 96¢ (that's 8¢ each). Vintage 6mm blue glass Japanese Millefiori Flower Beads. The word "Millefiori" is Italian and means 1000 flowers. To make these flower patterns on the beads is labor intensive and requires hand cutting a hot cane of glass that has been patterned. These are unsold old stock from a warehouse on the West Coast. They were made in Japan and were imported in the late 1960s during the flower power hippie craze. They are all handmade and so the sizes will vary a little and they may not all be perfectly round. Excellent condition.
