Uncovered in its original packaging. These are very small! 2.5mm in size, however the hole is pretty large for such a small bead. These French Torres are from the Napoleonic Era. Made from the 1800Ì´Ì¥Ì´ÌÓs until 1920. They were produced for soldiers uniform decoration and strung to look as though they were braided on the uniform. They are seamless brass and have a crude corrugated look. We canÌ´Ì¥Ì´ÌÓ't wait to incorporate these into some seed bead projects to add an extra special antique element to our designs. Sold original gross packs of approximately 140 beads per package.
