Last year at Tucson a good friend of mine walked by and threw a small leather bag to me and said here’s a gift for you and Suzi, Richard has had it on consignment for twenty years. Well this is the bead and I am 99% sure it is Indonesian.
I feel this is not a newer bead for these reasons. The quality of the work is far above anything seen in most current production including construction, quality of the canes, quality of overall glass work.
I would like the hear thoughts from all out there that know far more about this type bead than I. I already established it was older than twenty years I would like to hear your ideas in regards to its age.
28.8mm diameter 22.6mm long
All my best .............. Danny
P.S. Do you see a bird image in the cane?
