Two cylindrical polychrome beads, similar but not identical. Faussett records that they had iron rings through them, now lost.a) Max. diam. 1.9 cm, height 1.7. The body apparently of dark green translucent glass with opaque red marvered marbled patterns running around the circumference, overlaid by thick opaque white marvered trails applied in deep zig-zags from top to bottom. Over the ends of these white trails is a band of opaque orange yellow at either end. b) Apparently basically opaque red with translucent dk. green marbling, overlaid by deeply marvered thick white (opaque) trails, 4 of them making a wave pattern around the circumference, and as on the last bead yellow bands over the white on the ends.
