Japanese glass ojime in a form of tombodama bead of light turquoise glass with morning glory blue and pink flowers among stems and leaves. 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 perfectly defined flower colors, in perfect condition. Height 3/4 inches.
