Vintage American Indian Beaded Light Bulb
This is really a novelty item, a conversation piece! It was purchased 5 or 6 years at an American Indian Antique Art auction. A more common item one finds is the beaded bottle, but I have yet to see another light bulb. It is probably a practice piece for someone learning beadwork, as it takes quite a bit of skill to get a beaded pattern to come out evenly over a three-dimensional form. The piece is done in 2 colors, cobalt blue and white, the blue beads being transparent and the white beads being opaque. There is a beaded loop at the end of the bulb indicating it could be hung as a decorative object. Size is that of a standard light bulb.

Item #amin01
