#BEADS0152 - Large Black Round Incised Handmade (Lampwork) Bead
Price is 25¢/bead. Vintage very large jet black handmade bead. They have a spiral incised on the surface. The size varies. Average size is nearly inch and a quarter in diameter, plus they are over a half inch thick. Because they were handmade (also known as lampwork beads), no two are alike. These are very uncommon. They were in a crate with made in Japan glass, so that would be our best guess. They are from the 1960s, or more likely, earlier. They are a bit dirty. Just rinse them off in water and they are in new unused condition.

They are in unused condition, and striking. Like most of the others in this find, so far as we can tell, there are no other examples of these to be found anywhere online, or anywhere else period. They were sold as hippie beads in the late 60s from a bead store near the Haight Ashbury area.

Bob found a hoard of unused old wax sealer cans from the 1920s many years ago, and pasted these labels on them and sold them to the Cracker Barrel.
