Antique Glass Christmas Garland with Bells 8′ Japan, Vintage Glass Beaded Tree Garland, 1930s
Rare very early mercury glass Christmas tree garland, over 8 feet long with lovely glass bells! Circa 1930s, Japan.
The 26 blown glass bells are so pretty, featuring a variety of bright colors. They alternate between rows of 1/4″ double silver beads. The beads are tightly strung and are one continuous strand, measuring 100.5 inches long (8.375 feet). The garland is finished with wire hanging loops. One end has its original cardboard square, a wonderful embellishment still intact after all of these years!
It is in very good vintage condition. 22 of the bells are in perfect condition, free of chips or cracks, 4 have small breaks. There are 2 additional bells (not included in the 26 count) that have broken; we have left the partial bells as is, a part of its history. There are just a couple of small broken beads, which is somewhat amazing considering its age and the fragile nature of the thin glass.
This is areally fun and hard to find garland for your vintage Christmas tree or holiday decorating this year, a wonderful addition to any Japan Christmas collection!
