  • Antique Venetian hollow hand-blown transparent glass bead with red and blue spiral stripes, 3.5 inches long, almost 1 inch wide in center
  • These rare and collectible beads have picked up the "fireside" name Jack Reese. I wish I knew why.
  • I have several of these beads, but each is unique. I'm listing some now and working on gently cleaning others for future uploading.
  • These beads are far more fragile than other trade beads, so it's not surprising that few have survived the long journeys and rough treatment that trade beads undergo.
