Vintage Japanese amber colored striped glass beads in a 6mm round.
The luster on them is just beautiful and because they are handmade, the striping may vary from bead to bead but I will match all 6 that you purchase.

It's very rare to come across unusual beads like these!
Price is for 8 of these 6mm beautiful vintage handmade glass beads which look wonderful when paired with tigereye !
If you like these beads, please check out my listing GL-564 which is a similar bead but in an oval shape.

I used these beads in earrings that I designed for the Smithsonian Institution's museum shops in the mid 1980's.

I 100% guarantee these beads to be vintage Japanese glass beads from the 1950's if not earlier.
I sold many such magnificent vintage glass beads through the Smithsonian Institution's museum shop and mail order catalog during the 1980's and they were also featured in trunk shows at Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue during this same time period.

You'll never see beads like this nowadays at your neighborhood "gem show"!
