I recently purchased this Squash in need of a restringing on eBay. I’ve never had a squash blossom where the beads aren’t those uniform seam, machine beads. This makes me wonder how old it is? What do you guys think?
Looks old, nice find. Did the seller have no information? This is a traditional style that you see over many decades, could get someone to make another just like it. Without a little bit of information it would be nearly impossible to date, but I will throw out 1970s.
I saw this one and thought about getting it! Do you think that red bead is a signature bead?
No, but I do think it adds a nice touch.
Small world!! I didn’t think it was a signature bead, I actually thought it was just plastic! I will definitely follow up when it comes in the mail. I thought it was older though.
What would be the value on a piece ike this?
$650ish, some of these that have a great piece of turquoise and well made can be very expensive.
