Vintage plastic is flexible and in the shape of spoke flowers.
The flowers are a violet purple color and measure 19mm.
They are vintage beads which were sitting in a manufacturer's warehouse for decades and are now brought to you.
This style of finding was used to embellish vanity items for the bathroom. Wondering how I know this? Am a vintage collector and have had several pieces from the 50s/60s that were decorated with similar beads.
