Japanese glass ojime in a form of tombodama bead with blue core and single white flower . Tombodama can be translated as “dragonfly ball” and the name is thought to come about because when the molten glass is applied to the core bead it resembles a dragonfly’s eye. Very well made piece - see the individual petals, in perfect condition. Height 3/4 inches.
