1pc UP for your consideration, this is a Venetian glass bead that was made in the 1960s, part of a series we are placing in our store this month. Some of them were made in India, during a period when the Venetians decided to train the Indian glass makers to make their famous cake style beads. This was made in India of cobalt BLUE w/ aventurina (goldstone) swirling thru the glass, and the signature "rose" center on both sides.. There are only 4 of this bead left. Size: 18mm round focal bead. *********BUY WITH CONFIDENCE,I HAVE BEEN SELLING BEADS FOR 20 Yrs********** This IS FROM A COLLECTION FROM MANY YEARS OF selling VINTAGE & NEW GLASS BEADS, and from jewelry design.I have listed most of them into 10-40pc lots and,often by theme, as they have been in my collection.
