#BEADS0794 - Group of 10 Glass African Trade Beads
Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. You get 10 for $3.50 (that's 35¢ each). These are African powder beads (sand cast beads) from broken strands. They are from the around the 1920s and run from about 7mm to 15mm in diameter. They were made from ground glass ballast from ships. I did notice a clay one here and there too. These were used as currency and decoration in Ghana. A friend brought these to this country many years ago. They are in typical used condition. All sorts of different types and styles. You will get a mix similar to the picture. No special requests please.

#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.

#BEADS0027 - Group of 12 6mm Blue Glass Japanese Millefiori Flower Beads
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.

Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. You get 50 beads for $4 (that's 8¢ each). Group of 50 vintage transparent green 7-8mm diameter Japanese dimpled glass beads. These are from around 1950, and are unsold old stock in excellent unused condition that we found in remote storage in a store up in the northeast.

#MSH057 - Very Large Lucite Pendant - Hippies
Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. Vintage very large 8 1/4" tall lucite pendant with loop at the top. These were made as a decorative item back in the 1960s when lucite was popular. The hippies noticed them, and started wearing them as pendants. We got them from the warehouse of a local distributor who sold tons of them back in the day and had a couple of cases still sitting back in remote storage. They are in perfect condition. They could be used for all sorts of stuff from chandelier crystal to Christmas tree ornament. They are nice.

#BEADS0148 - Amazing Huge Glass Swirl Floral Pattern Hand Made Bead
Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. Vintage nearly 1" wide (average) handmade bead. These are large heavy glass beads that have swirls forming a floral pattern in white and red against the black glass. Because they were handmade (also known as lampwork beads), no two are alike. The sizes are plus or minus a bit and the designs are unique on each one. They are in unused condition, and are some of the most beautiful pieces you will ever see. As far as we can tell, there are no other examples of these to be found anywhere online, or anywhere period. They came into the store in 1967, but are old stock that appear to be fancy Venetian floral beads from the early 1900s.

#BEADS0349 - Group of 4 Red Rose Design 18mm Japanese Ceramic Big Hole Beads
Click the picture to see larger more detailed image (two views pictured). You will get 4 for $1 (that's 25¢ each). Vintage red rose design (on two sides) 18mm long big hole ceramic beads. These were in boxes marked "Made in Japan" and are from the late 1960s. 

Hippies were stringing big hole beads on rope back in the day and these had the earthy look that was popular. They are in unused condition, and are very uncommon. They were sold as hippie beads in the late 60s from a bead store near the Haight Ashbury area. In 1967, the hippie phenomena dominated the area and the demand for beads was huge. The owner of this store put out the call that he wanted all types of beads that were either colorful, large, earthenware, or had mystical significance. The hardcore hippies wanted glass or ceramic or earthenware, so that is what most of these items are. The demand started slacking as the hippie phenomena died down and by the mid 1970s, they started selling gold chains and disco related items instead. The hippie items were taken from the front shelves, and stored in the back. The newspaper they were wrapped in was dated 1977, so that's when they put them back there. The most striking thing in the store was an old display of huge African Trade Bead necklaces from the 1800s. They were even selling those sort of beads to the hippies. One of those necklaces will run you about 2 grand now. That place is a real time warp. You could still smell incense around some of the boxes and I kept hearing Jimi Hendrix and Jefferson Airplane in my head. Just amazing.

#BEADS0463 - Star Shaped 15mm Blue Lace Quartz Pendant - As low as 40¢
Vintage 15mm (.6") tall star shaped pendant with a single hole at the top. They look like glass to me, but the packaging says "Blue Lace Quartz" "West Germany". Going by the packaging, they are likely from the 1960s. They have flat backs and could be used to  make many things. These are well made high quality pieces and unusual. I couldn't find any anywhere else on the internet. They are in like new condition.
 
This is from our latest treasure hunt! These are from a warehouse of cabachons and beads! All were in original packaging. All are 50 - 90 years old.

#BEADS0149 - Very Large Very Colorful Ceramic Handmade Splatter Glass Bead
Price is 30¢/bead. Vintage very large heavy glass bead. These are over an inch and a half inch long. They are handmade splatter glass with very bright colors. Because they were handmade (also known as lampwork beads), no two are alike.

They are in unused condition, and fantastic. Bright hippie colors. So far as we can tell, there are no other examples of these to be found anywhere online, or anywhere period. They were made in India and came into the store around 1967.


They were sold as hippie beads in the late 60s from a bead store near the Haight Ashbury area. In 1967, the hippie phenomena dominated the area and the demand for beads was huge. The owner of this store put out the call that he wanted all types of beads that were either colorful, large, earthenware, or had mystical significance. Some of the items that he brought into the store were much older, and we will note them in the listings. The hardcore hippies wanted glass or ceramic or earthenware, so that is what most of these items are. The lucite stuff was for the fake hippies. The demand started slacking as the hippie phenomena died down and by the mid 1970s, they started selling gold chains and disco related items instead. The hippie items were taken from the front shelves, and stored in the back. The newspaper they were wrapped in was dated 1977, so that's when they put them back there. The most striking thing in the store is an old display of huge African Trade Bead necklaces from the 1800s. They were even selling those sort of beads to the hippies.

#BEADS0169 - Group of 4 Large Heavy Glass 22mm Green and White Tibetan Dzi Blessings Beads
Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. You will get 4 for $1 (that's 25¢/bead). Vintage very heavy thick glass green and white 22mm long Dzi five eye beads. The five eye design represented blessings from the five Tibetan Wealth Gods, and were believed to provide the holder with prosperity and affluence. These are the late 1960s hippie era. They were sold in the late 60s from a bead store near the Haight Ashbury area. So, they are at least that old, and I suspect older. The oldest Dzi beads were made of agate. These are glass. They are old handmade lampwork beads. The hippie phenomena dominated the area and the demand for beads was huge. These are the leftovers from that era that were relegated to storage as the fad faded. They are in nice unused condition.

#BEADS0494 - 17mm Clay Colored Hippie Bead - As Low as 15¢ each
Vintage multi-sided 17mm (.7") across clay colored bead. These are made from a lightweight material, but look exactly like red clay. Packages were marked "Made in Japan". These are from the late 1960s, and are in perfect unused condition. They really have the look of the day and would be great for a late 1960s period piece.
 
This is from our latest treasure hunt! These came from a different warehouse in the same area.
