You might visualize a young lady wearing these beads to have her photo portrait taken and displayed in a gutta percha frame. Perhaps with a bow in her hair and a locket on her breast. She would look her best, with a fresh ribbon in her hair and a serious expression.
Celluloid was invented in the 1850s and was one of the first plastics to be used in jewelry. It's rare to find an intact Victorian strand . These beads are a darkish coral and measure 16". There is a ½" long 10K antique clasp.
