Round 18mm Bead (5) - Vintage Lacquered Wood
This LACQUERED WOOD bead is 18mm round with a 3mm hole.
Gorgeous and lustrous, the bead has an ochre yellow colour, kind of a cross between brown/orange/yellow colour. A fabulous colour to use on any tribal type of design!
Fabulous bead for modern macrame wall hangings or plant holders. The large holes are great for this type of project.
And ... this dark mustard colour is very very popular right about now!
Quantity per pack: 5 beads
Made in India around 1970/1980s as far as we can work out. These beads are at least 40 years old.
Even though these beads were made in India, we feel they were made for a specific market in another country or countries, as the standard of manufacture of these beads is exemplary. Traditionally, Indian beads have quite a rough and ready nature, and wood beads aren't something that I would associate with India.
