25mm Flat Oval (5) - Black w. White - Glass Vintage Replica Trade Beads
is backordered and will ship as soon as it is back in stock.
Measurements: 25mm long x 18~20mm wide x 10~13mm thick with a 3mm 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).
Colours: Black opaque base with a white line wrapped around .
Origin: Hand Made in India - We believe this bead to be a reproduction of a Trade Bead.
The patterning for this bead has been made by running a line of white opaque glass around the black base. The black and white colouring is very effective and will give a great impact on your designs.
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.
