Vintage Czech cathedral glass 1940 beads, vintage German red glass bead 1950

Deep cherry red glass beads have been repurposed into perfect holiday earrings! Fabulous and very old cathedral glass beads that have 'polka dots' on them measure 8mm ( approximately 1/4" )and sit on top of a very translucent and dimpled German glass bead that's approximately 14mm long. I love how the dots on the Cathedral glass compliment the dimples on the German bead.

(My husband found these elegant beads at an outdoor market in Moscow, Russia in 1991. After the fall of the Berlin Wall, Russians realized for the first time in a century that they would not be arrested if they sold items in an outdoor market. In those first few years, huge flea markets arose spontaneously all over Moscow. People sold everything from Oriental rugs and religious icons to craft items and jewelry. Much of what was in the marketplace was antique and Joel was told that without a doubt, these beads were from the 1940's and had been hidden away for years!)

Ornate silver plated pewter beads separate these two vintage beads and these earrings have been finished on silver plated french ear wires.
Total length of these earrings is approximately 1 1/8" and they will arrive in a little box all ready for gift giving.
