VINTAGE GERMAN BLUE GLASS Beads TULIP Flowers 10mm pkg 6 1970 GL129
Vintage German glass beads that are a beautiful translucent sapphire blue colored glass with ruffled edges and a gentle curve to the sides so that they look like little tulips. You can also see the beautiful luster on them despite them being over 25 years old!
********* If you love these beads, please check out item GL-047 which is very similar but in an amber colored glass instead ,item GL-118 which is the same bead but in a beautiful amethyst color and item GL-048 which is a beautiful ruby red color**********
These beads make amazing 'spacers' in both bracelets,earrings and necklaces and are wonderful with both the genuine semiprecious lapis beads I have in my shop and the blue and white vintage Chinese porcelain beads.
Price is for 6 of these unusual beads that I 100% guarantee are vintage beads from at least the late 1970's and perhaps earlier. They are West German pressed glass as are all the other beads in the other colors and measure approximately 4mm x 10mm.
I sold many of these vintage glass beads through the Smithsonian Institution's museum shop and mail order catalog during the 1980's and they were also featured in trunk shows at Bloomingdales and Saks Fifth Avenue during this same time period.
You'll never see beads like this nowadays at your neighborhood "gem show"!

IMPORTANT NOTICE: POSTAGE RATES HAVE RISEN DRAMATICALLY IN 2016
ORDERS INSIDE USA: A charge of $3.60 covers any first class shipment up to 8 ounces. Our beads vary so much in weight that it is impossible for us to apply a single add-on charge for multiple product orders. We will continue to refund to customers any amount that greatly exceeds our actual cost of shipping and handling.
ORDERS OUTSIDE USA: International First Class rates are now crazy: $13.50 for any package weighing from 1-8 ounces. Even an order for 2-3 small bead items may cost $13.50 or more, depending on the type of material (stone versus resin, for example). Please bear with us for a few weeks while we change our listings to account for the new rates. We apologize in advance if we have to adjust the postage cost of an order that has been placed. We will understand if an order is rescinded when the postage cost is too high relative to the product value.
All international orders have contents described as "loose beads" and are flagged as "commercial samples" or " gift" if you prefer to make your life easier when receiving your beads. If you'd like us to mark your order as " gift" instead please let us know!
All our beads are inspected one by one before being shipped. They are individually wrapped to protect them and then put in little plastic ziploc bags.
All vintage beaded jewelry is either shipped in a little gift box tied with a ribbon or in a vintage Chinese embroidered silk purse.
If you ever have a problem with a damaged bead or jewelry, don't hesitate to contact us. We are only human, and with so many orders going out on a daily basis, there is always room for error.

Nice beads!! Super fast thanks a lot!!!
I have dreamed of having a necklace such as the jade one. But the red one. That was a surprise. Both are beautiful. Thank you! Best, Jane
Lovely color;!interesting stones.
When I thought that I had ordered two of these and then checked out I had to order another set. The seller was very kind and combined my two orders and refunded my shipping.
Nice quick shipping on some hard to find items! Good packaging too!
