If you read carefully, you will see that I did not suggest these are Moretti beads. I said they probably were not.

I have been to the Moretti industry twice. In 1991 and 2019. I have seen their museum, workspace, inventory storeroom, and commercial display. I took photos both times. More in 2019.

It is abundantly demonstrated that, in addition to unconventional 1920's colors, Moretti continued to make conventional blue and green chevron beads, when stock was needed, through the 1960s. Their star-patterned work also demonstrates canes they might have produced to make odd rosetta beads.
