Japanese glass ojime in a form of tombodama bead with multicolored and multilayered core with six red and two white prunus flowers and silver flakes inclusions. 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. Superbly made piece - see the individual stamens and finely textured petals, in perfect condition. Height 13/16 inches.
