Vintage Red 14mm Fiorato Beads
Vintage, Red Murano Glass,14mm Round Venetian Glass Beads. We are always searching the "back rooms" of our Italian bead makers in Venice and Murano. Sometimes, we are able to find some of the old, vintage, Fiorato beads; occasionally referred to as "Wedding Cake" beads.
The beads were made one by one, under the flame, and are called "lampworked beads".
Fiorato beads have swirls of aventurina (copper filings), pink roses on one side, and blue and yellow "forget-me-not flowers" on the opposite side.
