A wonderful old 1930s beaded silver mercury glass Christmas tree garland with 23 tiny blown mercury glass bells attached. It's 104" long, 8 feet 8 inches. Four or five beads have side holes or chips, otherwise they're all in good condition though there are a few inches of string (not included in measurement) where broken beads were removed. One end of the garland has a foiled cardboard star and wire stopper, the other end is just knotted. The multi-color glass bells are a little less than an inch long. Some have some finish wear, particularly the red and pink bells, but none have any chips or breaks. The bells can easily be repositioned or removed by slipping the little wire hangers from their necks.
