These vintage glass beads were made in Austria. They are a classic blend of a soft cool toned gray with black accents. The black glass is actually a dark purple and the areas were this glass is thinned out have a lovely purplish hue to them. The beads are little elongated tubes with four sides. They measure 11mm in length and approximately 4mm in he center. You will receive 30 of these lovely beads (probably without the tag, sorry!).
