Bead Pattern is the most popular variant of Old English Pattern. It takes the elegant form of Old English and adds a beaded trim around the stem. First popular in the 1780s with a renaissance in the 1860s, Bead is one of those patterns which looks equally at home in a traditional or contemporary setting. Beaded decoration is frequently seen on silver and other antiques. As such, bead is a pattern which can easily be matched with candlesticks, sauce boats, serving dishes and more.
