These vintage cloisonné oval beads were handmade and have pink and red flowers with green leaves decorating them. The background is gold and is not filled in with enamel. The result is really pretty, and the flowers looked raised.
They are guaranteed to be vintage from the 1970's and high quality beads that are smooth and very silky to touch. The cloisonne that is manufactured now is lower quality and the metal is just applied to the surface. It is often rough and the enameling is thin. It doesn't compare to the excellent workmanship of cloisonné from the 1960-70s.
They measure 9 x 7mm. Sold in packages of 12 beads. Mint Condition - Circa 1970's
