This is a wonderful set of 7 antique Italian/Venetian Millefiori or Mosaic tube beads from the mid 1800's. The Italians are famous for making these beads with beautiful flower canes. This set of beads has yellow backgrounds with vibrant colors and gorgeous cane designs. They are 12mm tubes with a dark inner core and are covered in blue, white, yellow and rust cane flowers. Some of the beads have chips on the ends, but they have a nice polish with very little pitting. This is normal for trade beads due to their age, journey and extensive use. You get these exact beads.
