On eBay recently there were some beads offered with the following description:

STERLING SILVER VERMEIL (gold coating) with COBALT BLUE and TURQUOISE ENAMELING. They are never-used old store stock, made in China during the 1930's. The old tags were still on when I purchased them. They are handcrafted, so each bead is unique.

These RARE beads are hollow with cobalt blue and turquoise enamel flowers. The bead caps are cobalt blue. They measure 25x11mm.
