Joulan, not to be confused with Joulet. Apparently either the same or a similar base, this item was also made by Swarovski on a special consignment and confined to a single customer. These were acquired at an auction in the early 50's. Looking at this bead will tell you why Swarovski beads are/were so popular, absolutely incredible. It is in the pink-cranberry family, that is as close as I can get. They are round, there is a finish on them that shows as reflections in the photo, and I do not expect these to be here too long. We did have them in 5mm and those are long gone. These measure 6mm.

Just don't make 'em like they used to! Here is a long discontinued Medium Vitrail bead in 8mm. This one has extra facets which you can see where the arrows point. The extra facetting was added to give the beads more brilliance, it worked quite well but proved to be a costly process and was soon abandoned. Another Swarovski gem from 1947.
