This is a wonderful set of 6 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 have yellow backgrounds with vibrant colors and gorgeous cane designs. They are 14mm tubes with a black inner core and are covered in 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. The longest beads are 40mm.
