|Re: An observation on contemporary "Boshan" style millefiori beads -- beadiste||Post Reply||Edit||Forum||Where am I?|
The newer beads have canes that have fewer spirals around the center. Nevertheless, these canes do spiral (!) and are different from the Venetian canes that inspired them, that have complete concentric stripe layers.
I showed the only "new" Chinese millefiori beads I am aware of, about 10 years ago, that I believe were not made by exploiting old stocks of canes.
