These 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 ornamental counterweights to court jewelry and table coverings. They weigh in at 21.9 grams. In good condition for their age with a few fleabites here and here. Very rare and very limited quantity.
