$1.00



#BEADS0152 - Large Black Round Incised Handmade (Lampwork) Bead
Price is 25¢/bead. Vintage very large jet black handmade bead. They have a spiral incised on the surface. The size varies. Average size is nearly inch and a quarter in diameter, plus they are over a half inch thick. Because they were handmade (also known as lampwork beads), no two are alike. These are very uncommon. They were in a crate with made in Japan glass, so that would be our best guess. They are from the 1960s, or more likely, earlier. They are a bit dirty. Just rinse them off in water and they are in new unused condition.

They are in unused condition, and striking. Like most of the others in this find, so far as we can tell, there are no other examples of these to be found anywhere online, or anywhere else period. They were sold as hippie beads in the late 60s from a bead store near the Haight Ashbury area.

#BEADS0154 - Group of 12 Early Plastic Green and White Beads with a Speckled Pattern and Goldstone Flecks
Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. You will get 12 for $1.00 (that's about 8¢ each). Vintage hard plastic beads with a beautiful green and white speckled pattern that are 11-12mm in diameter. They also have splotches of goldstone (aventurine). This is an early style of plastic that was made around 1950 or possibly earlier. They look a lot like old aventurine marbles from the 30s.

They are in unused condition, and like most of the others in this find, so far as we can tell, there are no other examples of these to be found anywhere online, or anywhere else period. These were the only plastic beads stashed away with the hippie beads, but are substantially older. 
 

$1.00



#BEADS0158 - Large Blue Rose Ceramic Japanese Big Hole Bead
Click the picture to see a larger more detailed image. Vintage big hole ceramic bead with a blue rose design. These were in boxes marked "Made in Japan" and are from the late 1960s. They are nearly and inch long. Hippies were stringing these "large" hole beads on rope back in the day. Brightly colored flowers and big holes.

They are in unused condition, and are 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. 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. 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.

#BEADS0202 - Group of 10 Very Old Shiny Emerald Colored Venetian Tube Bead
You get 10 for 80¢ (that's 8¢ each). Vintage 26mm (1 inch) long thin four sided emerald colored shiny Venetian tube beads. These are incredible. Still brightly colored and found in unopened wrapping. They are from the early 1900s. Most of the early Venetian beads are very small. These are really long and very useful for making things.

Here's the incredible story. In 1898, the Societa Veneziana Conterie Consortium was formed. It was a group of 16 bead makers who put their beads in one place so they could be sold by one sales force. Some of the stock was old when it came there in 1898 (these are those)! In recent times, the consortium was dissolved and the remaining 400,000 plus pounds of beads were sold to an American Indian Trading post. We were able to get ahold of a good quantity of the oldest types (the wrapping confirms the are pre WWI). All were made between the 1800s and 1920. They are an incredible bargain.
