BT1201SO: Old Stock Czech Rhinestones/Scarlet
These are charming! I was thrilled to find them tucked away in a family owned business which has been operating for decades and still housed in the original old building. These are Czech sew-ons or buttons. The brilliant foil backed rhinestones are set in glazed opaque glass buttons. Some of these are snowy white and others have aged to a mellow cream or hint of ivory. For some reason, the scarlet ones have a really old appearance. The glass settings are not snowy white, so if you are seeking ones that really look old, these are perfect. You are purchasing a full hank which is six 6~1/2" strands with about 20-21 beads or buttons on each strand. So about 120 buttons or more. PLEASE NOTE THESE ARE VINTAGE, therefore.. there they have aged and DO show age! Occasionally a rhinestone may be loose or even fall out of the setting, but it can be resecured into the setting with a drop of glue. These are not prong set rhinestones. Some have a hint of bronze around the setting suggesting old original glue residue. These are really delightful for crafts, sewing, embellishments, etc but to even display in a basket. Most have their original tissue wrappings.
