Item details

Red White Heart Beads Antique / Vintage Strung on Cat Gut 18 1/2" - 7mm Medium Size from FashionPuss.

Etsy now has so many listing options I hope you will look carefully at the photos - these have been in my personal stash for decades. They are not modern reproductions. I acquired the strand from an outfitter who sold trade beads and reenactments around the US.

The strand is 18 1/2" long - strung on catgut (when original cording broke). They are about 7mm and there's a slight irregularity in shapes of some beads - they have not been "scrubbed" so I suspect the dark patina will brighten if you choose to clean them yourself.

One of the beads is chipped (see close up photo).

I have other old beads in my shop and will be listing some additional strands of trade beads (green heart & African) from the same source this weekend.

Please convo any questions.

Delivery is prompt (same or next business day following payment) and package responsibly. Always happy to recalculate postage for combined orders between both shops.

Now that Etsy has a more reliable shipping system, you'll be given a couple options for postage. If you require additional insurance, please convo me before checkout so I can give you a quote and add it to the delivery cost.

If I the checkout process you find the postage doesn't quite look right; I'm happy to double check it if you send me a convo.


Etsy checkout is preferred but I also accept Paypal, personal checks (as long as we let funds clear before shipping), and money orders.
