#BEADS0028 - Vintage Very Large Smiley Face Bead/Decoration
Vintage very large 2 3/4" wide smiley face bead/decoration. The front is a heavy plastic and the reverse is tin. There are 5 different colors. The more you buy, the more colors you will get. The boxes they were in were marked Japan. They have two holes in the back for stringing, and a notch between them. You pulled the string or wire down in the notch to keep them from moving. There was probably a type of pin you could use with them too. I remember seeing these decorating belts back in the day. They had multiple uses. They are old unsold stock from a bead store on the east coast that closed 30 some years ago. The tin on the reverse has a little tin patina which adds to their charm. The Smiley face was invented in 1964 by cartoonist Harvey Ball. Buttons and items like this because very popular during the hippie days and peaked in 1971 when over 50 million Smiley Face buttons were sold!!!!

#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.
