Roman glass bead??
« on: January 10, 2015, 07:18:33 pm »
Came by this glass bead. I don´t know anythig about items like this one - but I think it might be Roman. What do you say about that?

More important still, is it authentic?

I´d be happy to hear your oppinions!

The style looks more Islamic or Turkic to me but I am no bead expert.

To say whether it is fake, you must know what it is a fake of.
