We are very excited about this new vintage find! These are vintage Japanese, handmade porcelain flower beads. They are stamped "Japan" on the bottom. These vintage porcelain flowers measure 40mm in diameter and 18mm in height. Handmade, each one of these delicate porcelain flowers is unique in size and coloring. These vintage porcelain beads each have a center hole through the flower and the stem. We believe that they were made to be used as a finial, perhaps on a lamp. You could use the vintage pretties as end beads on a necklace or incorporate them into most any design. Just use your imagination!
