We just loved the original box full of these wondrous crystal. Some were loose and we took a photograph of the package when we opened it. The chaton (aka, chatton) cut is particularly elegant due to its supreme clarity and brilliance which is due to the particular style of cutting. Bicones are by far the most popular crystal bead shape because the of the splendid refraction in the crystal when cut in this double pyramid shape.
Our crystals were made in the 1940s or early 1950s in what was then Czechoslovakia. These sweet clear crystal bicone chatons have been made with the famed precision and artistic clarity of the Czech glass and crystal makers.
These are 5mm wide and 7mm long. The hole for stringing runs through the 7mm length.
