Japanese glass ojime in a form of tombodama bead of red glass with pink, yellow and light blue flowers with stems. 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 tiny bubbles placed in the flower centers, in perfect condition. Height 3/4 inches.
