Polychrome bead from Nørre Sandegård Vest, Bornholm Denmark (6)
Glass polychrome Viking-era beads based on finds from Nørre Sandegård Vest, Bornholm, Denmark. This is one of a group of beads found in the same area.
A base bead of black glass is trailed with red waves, a band of yellow in the middle and a band of white around each end near the hole.
The numbering system is to indicate the bead for our purposes, not an archaeological designation.
Viking-era glass beads based on finds from Denmark, these lampworked beads have been created using the traditional method of winding layers of molten glass around a mandrel (metal rod) and then decorating the bead with additional molten glass in contrasting colours in a variety of patterns including thin trails of glass or layered dots.
They are fully annealed and cleaned before being made available for sale.
The price is for ONE bead.
Apparently, the burial site at Bornholm has another distinction! Denmark’s oldest onion was found in the excavations at Nørre Sandegård on Bornholm. So, now you know.
