Vintage Old Dog Bone Red Bohemian Pressed Glass Beads 24 ins #D
These are not really easy to fine and I don't clean them because you need to see how old they are. A bit of Dawn and a touch of Clorox and they will be new! They are known as "Dog Bone" beads and are probably made in the early 1900s. Bohemian Pressed Glass, made for the African Trade. I've also come across them in Guatemala. Strand is 22 ins. Beads in those days had pure gold in them to get that red. Not any more..Strung the way they came from Africa.
