Antique Italian glass seed beads in size 11/0 opaque scarlet red. It’s just a tad darker than the first photo suggests, it’s a nice rich primary red.
Color: Opaque Scarlet Red
Quantity: 10 grams
These old Murano glass seed beads were manufactured between the late 1800’s and the 1920’s by the Societa Veneziana Conterie . This was a consortium of 16 independent Venetian bead makers that joined together from 1898-1992. Because these are hand crafted beads, made very long ago, they show greater variance in size and shape than contemporary beads.
These beads are a size 11/0 seed bead. The average diameter is about 2.21 mm, and they fit easily on a 22 gauge wire. When strung, there are about 17-20 beads per inch. You’ll receive a 10 gram bag of beads.
These pictures have been magnified to give a good sense of color and shape. While I’ve tried very hard to describe and capture the colors accurately, you should keep in mind that there are color variances from one computer monitor to the next. Please pay attention to the written color description as well as the photos.
