OK just saw this from an Instagram Guy that collects & sells Cool Antiques, and some Beads. He is claiming these beads are (Antique) German Made Padre Beads- he bought in bulk. I could swear the Colors, furnace winding, Sizes, etc. are dead ringers for Antique and Vintage Chinese Cottage Industry (maybe later also Factory produced) Beads (like you find on Antique Padre Strands. Chinese Jewelry, and Old Chinese Sewing Baskets). They may even be Newer but I have not seen any New like this (possible).

There are some obvious doubles and a few triple beads in the pile. His finger shows at some point for scale - estimating 6mm-8mm-10mm size.

Is he just mistaken? I have a lot of these (Antique Chinese) Beads and I think Chinese pretty Clearly..I left a comment to that effect with my opinion.

Thanks, Anne
