Bohemian Pressed Glass Red Single Bead Necklace
This is a special bead. I have been seeking them out and collecting them for a long time. They are old, made in Bohemia. We refer to these beads as Czech, but in the old days...it was Bohemia.
These beads were made mostly for the Tibetan market, to sort of emulate Coral. This red comes with putting gold into the mix.. so this red is not being made in Trade Beads any more, making these all the more collectable.
Any I have, show their age, not in chips, but rather, slightly pitted often, having been worn in and maybe even danced in! They are all slightly different even, being so old, I have collected them whenever I found them.
