hi sarah-
i found pictures of it on your "ethnicjewels" site just now, which is great and useful- and I'm glad you explained -so the ruler whose edge is just about visible is divided into millimetres.
the glue looks rather like wax??

these wound versions are super cool and also very rare, I have a couple about the same size as yours, 35.75mm X 25.75mm, here are some related examples of Chevron fakes, which in my opinion are far more collectible and rare than the beads they copy.

These same bead type with its drawn cane counterpart, which came first in this case?

My thinking....
The true chevrons came first, were labour intensive and popular.
The lampwork ones were an attempt to copy them in a quicker way. They were less popular and therefore less were made.

hello Red
Funny, I am thinking the other way around.
Making a gather, pulling it, cutting it into pieces and then grinding them into individual beads seems a lot of work, but the resulting number of finished beads from a cane in the long run is faster and therefore more economical than making the same number of wound beads one by one if they are intended in mass production.
The chevrons shown in this case are fairly common and are on various sample cards from 1920 to 1940.
The "fake" ones, I believe them to be made in the 1800s (and could be earlier, who knows for sure?).
