Peking glass is an overlay carved glass formed by created by layering material around a core. To create the overlay, a glass blower makes the shape, then dips the shape into a basin of liquid glass several times. This process creates multiple layers of glass that are then carved away to produce a textured image. Peking glass is often made with different colored layers of glass, creating contrast when the outer layers are carved away. In the late 19th century, glass-works in Czechoslovakia produced imitation Peking glass beads for use as costume jewellery.
