Vintage Czech glass seed beads in a beautiful shade of garnet red! They are from the 1930's and are clear garnet red glass, not lined, so they have a glow like garnets! Each bead has slight irregularities rather than the uniform shape of newer glass beads. Gorgeous when paired with tiny peacock gray pearls!
beads measure 1mm each. And listing is for three scoops or 12 grams of them. (photo in bag is ⅓ of order)
Please see photos for condition and details and utilize zoom tool for even closer images. Remember, vintage components have inherent imperfections and this only adds to the charm and uniqueness of the piece as a whole.

Pretty in Prague ships packages Mon.-Fri. Please note that Sat., Sun. and holidays are not normal shipping days. Priority shipping from the Czech Republic to the US is estimated at 6-10 business days, but can take up to 30 days if the item is held up in customs--I will answer any of your concerns while waiting on a package through convos. Domestic shipping in the US ranges from 3-5 business days.
***SHIPPING COST includes insurance, packaging and handling costs*** I refund shipping when the difference between the ACTUAL cost and QUOTED cost is $2.00 or more.
Shipping options from the Czech Republic includes full insurance and form of shipping is based on the destination countries' rules. [For example, Canada only allows insured items over 1200 czech crowns(approx. $63 usd) to be sent express mail and therefore is much higher than other countries which allow standard post.] It is possible to make arrangements for a lower cost shipping with limited insurance and confirmation from the czech republic. However, in the event of a lost package through the mail, reimbursement will match insured amount (approx.$63 usd)NOT the actual cost of the item (ask before purchasing!)
Also packages shipped domestically from the US are shipped priority or standard post and fully insured by Shipsaver or USPS.
