Top antique Faturan collector piece. Very old as you can see from the strong red oxidation of the Bakelite and the sharp contrast between the saturated red of the bead body and the softer red of the circular area where the cord passes through. I estimate the age to be circa 1940 at the latest. Very minor chip on top bead that is barely visible, otherwise the beads are in pristine condition. Very rare cut consistent across all beads.

Beads especially smooth to the touch and the clicking sound is genuine Faturan and not loud. A lot of hours went into carving these beads.

Guaranteed to test positive with simichrome. Bead dimensions are about 10.5mm x 14mm.

Of all the beads I have owned or handled, this one has a grace and beauty I have not seen anywhere else. You will know just how special this one is when you hold it in your hands!
