We've been digging, and look what we found just for you. Made for Miriam Haskell, these are Japanese Cherry Brand Taffy Beads. Cherry Brand was group of glass artisans in Osaka, Japan from 1945 to 1952 during the US Occupation of Japan after WWII. Cherry Brand was not a factory. These porcelain white beauties were handmade by artisans in their own homes. These are so special, and very limited. The average size of these vintage beads is 14mm. These glass beads have the look of being flattened and then there is a raised, bubbled, figure eight pattern in the center. Handmade, no two are exactly alike. Hurry and get your own piece of Miriam Haskell history. These won't last long. You will receive approximately 30 beads per strand.
