~ "The New Bead Book, 1924" ~


Early catalogues are a marvelous resource about the accessories of by-gone days. This instruction booklet, dated 1924, came across my desk this month and I wanted to share it. The illustrations are lovely, and the techniques fascinating.

To quote from the book:

"From remote antiquity has come the use of beads for personal adornment... Since the fourteenth century the manufacture of beads has been a regular industry in Venice, and there are now a number of European countries engaged in bead production. In our own time the fashioning of beaded articles is not a fad... it is artistry.. in our military hospitals beadwork whiles away many otherwise weary hours for the convalescents, combining the making of articles for which they receive compensation with a very pleasant pastime... A work of art always lives, becoming enhanced by age in both value and sentiment."



"New Bead Book" published by National Trading Company, Chicago and New York, 1924.

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
