Fantastic antique glass Christmas beads from the Philadelphia location of the old Strawbridge & Clothier department store. The beads were last used and packed away in 1952 as indicated by their newspaper wrapping. The beads are in shades of gold. They are on a heavy wire. They are packaged in a coil. There are 6 boxes in total. Some boxes have a broken bead or two but overall in great condition. I cant imagine that any other shop will have these!
