Lot (47) C19th Czech Bohemian antique cranberry pink clear bicolor glass gemstone drops Medieval Art Nouveau jewelry making chandelier design. These were made by pouring droplets of molton glass onto a thin glass sheet. These were inspired by the gloriously smooth cabochon stones worn in the Medieval, Byzantine and Renaissance Era. Made to produce fine jewelry including regal crowns and coronets and were often used in Art Nouveau lamp bodies. Each will be different in size and shape. These are pink and clear bicolor and have been part square faceted.
Prior to press molding technology, these droplets would also be hand faceted to produce early rhinestone jewels.

For making jewelry, fashion design, sewing, art and crafting.
