From a collector’s estate, old Peking glass 30-32mm round bead in opaque midnight blue. These beads date from the early to mid 20th century. Thse beads are high luster and you can see tiny bubbles common to Peking glass just under the surface. These very large beads were often used as counterweights to table cloths as well as court ornaments. They weigh in at 60 grams. In good condition for their age with a few fleabites here and here. Very rare and very limited quantity.
