Vintage 16mm (.6") across cabochon. These have a lumpy pearlized finished and ground glass backs. The packages were marked "Baroque Pearl' and "Czechoslovakia". They were hard to photograph because of the reflections, but they are quite beautiful and different looking. They look pinkish in the photo, but they are more of a dark pearl white. They are in perfect never seen the light of day condition. The packaging on these looks older, and the ground glass back suggests they are older too. They are likely from the 1930s or 40s.

This is from our latest treasure hunt! From a warehouse of cabachons and beads! All were in original packaging. All are 50 - 90 years old.

#BEADSC0252 - Heavily Embossed Copper Plated Wheelbarrow Charm with Charm Loop and Moving Wheel
Vintage 1 1/8" wide copper coated wheelbarrow charm. The sides of the cart are heavily embossed with a floral design and the wheel moves. The handle has a charm loop on it. These are old store stock from the late 1940s in unused condition. Steel charms with copper plating were mostly made right after WWII when the price of these metals was very cheap. The price escalated rapidly between 1946 and 1950 and almost all of the charm makers went over to plastic. These are U.S. made.

We picked these up on our recent trip. We returned with over 100 catalog items! We found two separate warehouses loaded with beads, cameos, cabochons, charms, and other stuff that went as far back as the early 1900s.
