Rare Beads from Murano


These beads are very special, here is the story..I was in Murano many years ago and I went to the Constantini building.I could not get anyone answer because it was not open to tourists or other visitors at that time. I went round to the back and knocked on the door. A lady answered. She did not speak English and i did not speak enough Italian but we both spoke German! She invited me in, and after some conversation, She shows me some shelves behind some old Visquean curtains. There were old old bags full of different designs of beads and I found a whole bag full of these. I could see what they were. Practice beads for learners many years ago. Trade beads certainly, but they had never been sold or traveled the way these beads do.So, here are a few! Daisies.
