1920s Matchbox full of Tiny Assorted Glass Beads - Embroidery, Jewellery

£5.00
I found a box full of these tiny little matchboxes full of assorted tiny glass beads in an old warehouse clearance.
The box is less than 4cm long and contains lots of different sorts of beads.
The biggest beads - tube shaped are just under 1cm long the smallest about 2mm.
I have seen  old pieces of embroidery, clothes and even christmas decorations made out of beads like these. 
You can just imagine the delight some long ago little girl had on opening one of these boxes, lying the beads out and deciding what to do with them...
The boxes are a little stiff, well they are 80 odd years old, so open them carefully on a good surface, to make sure the beads don't all spill out..
I found a few boxes of these in an old warehouse I cleared.
