Round 22mm Bead (5) - Vintage Lacquered Wood
This LACQUERED WOOD bead is 22mm round with a 3mm hole.
It is a hazy black colour wood with tiny white flecks over it and features a red circle with yellow inside the circle. The yellow then has a red lined pattern on it. It makes me think of deserts and sun. Just right for an African themed creation!
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.
