RARE--Columbian Expo Glass Bead Like a Marble-Hand Painted/Holed for Necklace

$55.00

About the size of a marble,, this glass bead is hand painted and holed through the center so it could be worn on a chain. Very rare and I can't say that I've ever read anything about where it might have been made and sold. There were many, many souvenirs that were made at the Murano or Libbey glass factories that we have never seen. Libbey, of course, produced hundreds of different products and some included glass pendants so it may have been done there. Since it is hand painted no doubt a very limited number were created and sold on the Midway. Quite a find in the Kennel collection.
