20mm Tube (5) - Black w. Red & White Trailed Lines - Glass Vintage Replica Trade Beads

$7.00

Measurements:  20mm long x 15mm wide with a 4mm threading hole .  Indian manufactured beads can be a bit inconsistent in size, so measurements are approximate.

Quantity per pack:  5 beads - chosen at random (beads may vary from the photos as each bead is individual - photo is a guide only).

Origin:  Hand Made in India - We believe this bead to be a reproduction of a Trade Bead.

Colour:  These beads are on a base of opaque black glass, with stripes of red and white lines trailed around the black.  You can easily see that these are hand made as every bead is very different to the next.  This method of bead making is an old technique.

These could be used for multiple crafty ideas including decorating your own table cloth weights because they are quite a large bead.  Or incorporate one or two into an eclectic necklace strand.  Use as a feature bead or beads on a necklace, or one at the front of a bracelet.  Or just keep them as treasures in your stash!  You might even like to put them out in a bowl for a talking point in your home.

Bead Shack made a huge bead haul around 2007, and these beads were quite old before that.  The man we purchased them from used to collect large hauls of beads that became available, so who knows how long ago they were made!  Our best guess would be around 1980s.
