Home / Vintage French Glass Beads / Rare antique French torsé beads vermeil. Size 10. 5 gr bag. b17-106(e)
Fabulous rare antique French torsé bead, 2x1mm, size 10/0. Gorgeous Napoleonic era military brass used to decorate French army epaulets. They were last produced in the early 1900's and have fairly large holes. The writing on the original box read "simli or vermeil" so I am assuming these are a goldwash brass. Sold in 5 gram bags (approximately 200 beads).
