These Vintage Venetian Seed Beads were manufactured between the late 1800's and 1920's and are an exquisite example of fine Venetian craftsmanship. We've bought up oodles of amazing hand-crafted vintage Murano glass beads crafted by Societa Veneziana Conterie. Societa Veneziana Conterie was a consortium of 16 independent Venetian bead makers that joined together from 1898-1992. Many of the glass canes used in the manufacture of these beads date back much further than the formation of the consortium. Due to the HAND-CRAFTED nature of our vintage selections, certain variances in shape, size, and uniformity are to be expected and embraced.
