1 Vintage Cherry Brand Yellow Lace Glass Bead 17mm (00414-001)
1 Vintage Cherry Brand Yellow Lace Glass Beads 17mm. These handworked lampwork beads were made with incredible skill by Japanese bead makers. These Cherry Brand lace beads are constructed with a small glass tube at their core, to which a web of fluid glass is spun from one end to the other forming a sphere. The shape of these is judged by eye. Which is pretty darn clever!
Cherry Brand glass beads were produced in occupied Japan, post WWII. They were exported to the USA and to American bead dealers. At one point beads were one of the top ranking products for bringing much needed foreign currency into Japan. In their way beads helped to rebuild Japan. The beads were made by home workers rather than in a factory environment.
