Item details

Set of 5 glass vintage luster finish teardrops. The drops are glass coated with an iridescent lacquer that reflects light. They used to have an AB finish that was the rainbow colors of soap bubbles, but the only ones I have left have very little of the AB finish. There is a slight rainbow effect on some of the ones that I have left in stock but not enough to call them AB finish. These vintage glass teardrop charms have embedded wire loops. These make a fabulous pair of earrings or a pendant by just sliding on a finding or chain and you're ready to go!

Because the drops were all handcrafted, each one is unique. The last picture shows a larger assortment of the drops with the possible variations in size and finish. Keep in mind that the picture was taken when I still had some stock with the AB finish. There is some variety in the size....anywhere from 3/4 to 1 inch long. The width of the rounded end varies from medium to voluptuous. Some of the drops have more color than others. Some have spots in the coating adding to their vintage look. The silver color metal wires are mostly in very good shape but some have a slight patina. I will send a random assortment of the various finishes and sizes unless requested otherwise.

I believe these drops to be from the 1940s-1950s and made in Japan, possible Czech...though that is just an educated guess really. I spent over an hour looking for info on these and can't find anything like them anywhere.
