These vintage prosser glass beads were made in Morocco or Czechoslovaki before 1995 and have been in storage since then. Prosser beads were made using a technique invented in the 1800s involving crushing glass and mixing into a paste with other materials; they are never perfect and usually exhibit an "equator" around the bead. Sometimes there is schmutz in the hole, which can easily be poked out with a pin, and you may find a dud or two in the batch. This is compensated for by the really, really attractive price for so many beads in such saturated, opaque colors. Many of them go beautifully with the ceramic beads I sell. These were made using 100-year-old Czech glass bead presses. You can see examples of the very presses used for these beads in the additional photos to this listing, which is for:
