The best way to describe these antique bugle beads is "glossy"; they have a very smooth shiny finish. slightly larger than average size, they are 8mm long. You will receive 5g of strung and loose beads removed from hank.

These antique beads are from a wonderful lot I purchased from Europe. I believe this was the remnants of a business that made hand embroidered trims and appliques. As such, most of these beads are loose or in partly used hanks; I am selling them by weight. I have small amounts of quite a beautiful variety! The colours, micro size of some of the beads, and other assorted notions, like crochet bobbles and beads, helped me date these as antique, I believe 1900s-1910s era.
